Beginning in around 1500 BC perfume bottles have adorned the homes of the noble and wealthy.
Designed to hold their favourite scents which were believed to ward off bad spirits, honour the gods and of course to disguise unpleasant odors!
This particularly exquisite example is modelled from 18ct rose gold, highly polished (and reflective) with the stopper in what we firmly believe to be blue chalcedony.
With a very solid 1.8cm internal ‘wand’ for applying your scent also in gold.
Standing 3.2cm high to tip and 2cm wide and weighing a lovely 9 grams.
Quite the collectors piece this hard to find example would grace anyones dressing table.
Chalcedony / Quartz
Very good to excellent condition. Minor superficial marks to base around 18k mark. One tiny impression to one of the ribbed sides. Screw top wand seals securely and tightly.
