Gilded Souvenir or Sample Bottle
Item ME11: . . Believe it or not, scent bottles like this beautifully gilded one were sold as souvenirs or sample bottles. Although it is quite long, the actual open area for perfume is very narrow hence, you received a "sample". This bottle is in unusually good condition with nearly all of its gold decoration intact. There are a series of oval medallions containing a spray of leaves. Gold filler lines and branches cover the bottle completely. It retains its original flat round stopper which is presently stuck. Size: 7 1/2" x 3/4".
