About this item

On offer is this lovely collectible Victorian double scent bottle. It's in good condition overall, there are a few surface scratches to the glass body and the majority of the gold plating has rubbed off over the years exposing the silver base - traces can still be seen though which makes a lovely contrast. There is also a chip to the stopper's finial but as shown all adding to the aged charm and character of the piece.

It's of traditional form, the glass body decorated with a faceted finish. One end is a perfume bottle complete with original stopper (chipped finial) and the other end is for smelling salts - the screw cap still retaining original cork top. Both ends have been decorated with a beautiful intricate floral pattern with plain cartouches. One is a hinged cap and the other a screw cap.

The 'white metal' is not hallmarked however has been tested for sterling silver.

Produced by Sampson Mordan and Co of London (both collars marked "S. Mordan & Co Maker", circa late 19th century.
