Early 19th Century Panel Cut Lead Crystal Scent Bottle c.1800
For a full product description, see below.
This is a charming example of an early 19th century glass scent bottle, maker unknown.
The bottle has a flattened discoid rim leading to a short neck. The latter has a central applied glass neck ring; below this the neck widens out to form a rounded ‘shoulder’. The body is of tapering form and decorated with eight cut panels, rendering it octagonal in cross-section. This sits on a broad, discoid collar above a short, waisted stem. This widens out to merges with the broad, stepped discoid foot. The latter is polished flat and unmarked.
The stopper echoes the form of the body, and is of tapering, panel cut form. It is hexagonal in section, having been cut with six panels. There is a short waisted portion above the ground glass peg. The neck of the bottle is also ground to allow for close fitting.
It has a maximum height of approximately 14.7cm, with a diameter across the rim of about 2.9cm and across the foot of about 4.4cm.
It is in fair condition, although there are a number of small chips and grazes along the edge of the shoulder and panel cutting. There is also a large piece of frit enclosed within one of the panels. This wear is reflected in the price.
