Mid 1800's English 2 Bottle Cologne-Scent Set in Chest
Item #: 05060A
A beautifully preserved two bottle cologne-scent set in a small humpback chest with original key. This is a mid 1800's set, originating in England. It is simple, yet elegant. The humpback chest is leather covered, with small impressed corner designs. The metal escutcheon and the handle for carrying are handsomely cut. The metal has not been polished for a long time and retains much patina. The interior of the chest is teal blue silk. It is in excellent condition. The two square cut crystal cologne/scent bottles have square cut and beveled stoppers. The matching bottles are in excellent condition, no chips, cracks or flea bites. The bottles are 3 3/4" tall, 1 3/4" square, with the stoppers on. The chest is 4 1/8" tall, 2 3/4" wide and 4 1/2" long. This lovely cologne set would be a welcome addition to the serious perfume bottle collection!
