Russian enamels have a spirit and lively presence unique in the enamel world. They seem to be closely related to the traditional ethnic dress and costume of the region with their bold colors and distinct patterns.
Silver with a gold gilt finish, the shape is a teardrop. A graphic flower is emblazoned on the front and back in pure white, brick red, and cobalt blue against an inky ground. Both sides hold the same image in champlevé enamel. Around the edge, a double row of repeated circles also in chalk white adds a lively border.
Each of the painted cells or areas is defined by a sliver twisted wire border. A screw on and off pointed caps and safety chain ensure the perfume of scent stays within.
Faint traces of the perfume are evident with the cap off.
