Victorian Blue Guilloche Enamel Silver Top Bullet Shape Scent Perfume Bottle
RARE VICTORIAN BLUE GUILLOCHE ENAMEL SILVER TOP BULLET SHAPE SCENT PERFUME BOTTLE. This is a Rare Fine Quality Victorian Blue Guilloche Enamel & Solid Silver Top Bullet Shape Glass Scent Perfume Bottle, it dates to circa 1890 making it 128 years old , this is of a high grade silver as the op is marked 935 and carries the makers mark CC i believe this may be for the silversmith Colen Hewer Cheshire, the shape and design is wonderful, so very elegant and timeless, it has the most beautiful elegant Bullet Shape to the blue and clear facet cut glass body which is so very unusual , this finishes to the bottom with a pointed tip giving it the bullet shape, the design to the glass body is beautiful and when the light catches it the bottle sparkles, this also still retains its wonderful white metal and cork stopper, this is then finished with the most beautiful screw on high grade silver top which in turn is covered in a striking rich blue guilloche enamel, the quality of the craftsmanship is superb, it is fully hallmarked to the side the top. These would have once belonged to a wealthy Victorian lady and used daily in a time when thing were so very different. It is so very tactile and once picked up has the most wonderful feel, this will add something very special to any collection my photos dont do it justice. Lovely condition which just some chipping to the top as shown, and the cork stopper has shrunk a little so is a little loose, that being said it doesnt detract at all from its rare beauty, just mentioned for accuracy.
