A gorgeous gilt crystal perfume bottle in the style popular in the mid-19th century. Two stacked spheres cut in a six-sided pattern featuring oval reserves, stand on a short foot and rise to the panel-cut neck. The matching stopper has a large blown teardrop. The bottle is complete with ornate gilt floral decoration. The 1860 Baccarat sales catalogue (page 11) illustrates an identically shaped bottle, except that there is only one shaped sphere instead of two. The gilt pattern is also typical of Baccarat pieces from the 1840s-70s. The bottom retains a very old collectors inventory label and, under that, what appears to be an old customs sticker. The bottom has a concave polished pontil. Origin: France, ca. 1850. Condition: excellent, no cracks, a 1/16 nick on the lip, very minimal wear to the gilding. Size: 8-1/2 tall.
