Description

This is a Rare Georgian Faux Blonde Tortoiseshell Solid Silver Case & Glass Scent Bottle, this i believe to be c1800 making it around 219 years old, this is a Beautiful Faux Blonde Tortoiseshell and Solid Silver Case and Glass Scent Bottle, the Faux Blonde Tortoiseshell has the most Stunning Colours and the Shape of the Case is very Unique with a Curved Triangle Shape to it, and the Case has 3 Solid Silver Bands that give it a lovely finish, the Silver Button at the Front pushes to open the Lid, on the Lid is a Stunning Solid Silver Shield Cartouche with the word Friendship, and someones Initials. When The Lid is opened the Faux Tortoiseshell Case has a Beautifully Solid Silver Edge and also the Lid has the same Design, the Hinge is in Beautiful condition and it opens and closes with a lovely clicking sound, inside the Case it has a Lining and reveals the Cut Glass Scent Bottle which has been designed for this Case having the Same Shape, and it fits securely to the Case, this would have been owned by a Wealthy Lady in the Georgian Period in a time when things were different to today, condition is good to the Faux Tortoiseshell, but the Glass Stopper has Broken and is stuck in the Bottle and is only mentioned for accuracy, this doesnt detract from its Beauty and this will add something very special to any collection my photos dont do them justice.
