Wondrous Antique Silver Perfume Flaçon
A veritable piece of sculptural art in the form of a perfume bottle has a dramatic and baroque presence. Magnificently crafted of sterling silver and vermeil, the prodigious perfume flagon pendant has the shape of a three-dimensional cone.
With a configuration in the style of an ancient amphora. the sterling silver body has gently tapering sides and concludes with pointed vermeil apex dart element. The surface is hand engraved with two sets of initials – “S&S&T” and “HH&P” amidst a garden of trailing vines and foliate motifs. An ornate textured vermeil top is beautifully appointed with appliqués of textured ivy leaves and smooth vines which join length of sterling chain to a vermeil finger ring.
Two removable vermeil spouts are topped with sterling stoppers attached to a rounded dart-shaped filial with vermeil link chain. All original, this Victorian piece is the type of jewel meant to be past on to future generations.
Date: Circa 1890.
