Late 19th Century Hobnail Cut Lead Crystal Cologne or Perfume Bottle c.1870
For a full product description, see below.
This is a charming example of a high-quality lead crystal cologne bottle, maker unknown but dating to the latter part of the 19th century.
The bottle has a flattened rim and a short neck that is cut with eight facets. The shoulder is staggered with four circumferential cuts giving it a stepped appearance. The cylindrical body is cut with the complex ‘hobnail’ pattern. The base is thickened, and star cut in the centre.
The stopper is hollow, with a star cut apex. The edge is decorated with two rows of hobnail cutting, which is bordered above and below by a horizontal wedge cut. Below this the neck of the stopper is cut with six petal-shaped facets.
It has a height (including the stopper) of approximately 16.1cm, with a diameter across the rim of about 4.9cm and across the base of about 6.4cm.
It is in fair condition, although there are a number of small chips and grazes along the edges and within the cutting. This wear is reflected in the price.
