A Rock Crystal Scent Bottle


1 Available

SKU: 2/523 Categories: ,

A French rock crystal scent bottle is beautifully crafted from rock crystal and is encased in a meticulously detailed repoussé silver mount. The silver used in this piece has been tested and confirmed to be 950 silver, indicating a high metal purity; there are no hallmarks. The bottle dates back to around 1793. Perfume bottles like these were often used to hold perfumes or aromatic oils, and they were popular accessories in the 18th and 19th centuries. The craftsmanship and intricate detailing on this bottle suggest it might have been a luxurious item during its time. Repoussé is a metalworking technique in which metal is ornamentally shaped by hammering from the reverse side to create a low-relief design. Would like your opinion of the summary.
