Napoleon III Doré Baccarat Scent Bottle Caddy
Double scent bottle caddy with ormolu colliers on the necks of the bottles and an ormolu holder embellished with French bows, urns and floral festoons. All the things we love!
In perfect condition, but for one stopper, which is partially broken off inside the neck of the bottle. It was taken to a glass specialist, but he cautioned that it was too risky to remove, so it remains in place. Still displays as perfect.
The gilding is in excellent condition, and aside from the stopper, the glass is also in excellent condition. There is a small fleabite in the tip of one stopper.
A splendid example of fine French 19th century artisanry at its best.
Dimensions are 3" wide and 4 1/2" high
Très charmante, n'est-ce pas?
