Item Details

  • Period:
    18th Century
The rare 18th-century perfume bottle is the essence of extravagance. Crafted of ethereal opaline glass, the precious vial is encased in a yellow gold cage of Rococo scrolls and flowers. This striking design is punctuated by 11 agate cabochons set within the elegantly pierced design. A cork stopper beneath the hinged repoussé cap keeps one's scented oil secure. Since ancient times, perfume has always been a luxury reserved for the affluent. Made of the most precious and hard to find oils and fragrances, these scented concoctions have been kept in special containers, also crafted of the finest materials, such as crystal or porcelain, and a wide variety of designs. This delicate bottle is truly among the most intriguing.

Circa 1760
