Oxford Lavender Attar Scent Bottle c 1850
REF: SEPT22 / LA314374
This is a very pretty gilt glass attar perfume bottle. These type of scent bottles are also known as an Oxford Lavender or Throwaway , as they were sold containing a sample of perfume and were intended to be thrown away after use. The four faceted sides sliced-cut with thumb-cut patterns and heightened with simple gilt decorations. Fitted with the original gilt glass stopper. There is a little glass flaw in the manufacture, it is not a stain. These were very rudimentary glass scents, it makes them all the more charming.
Julie Cartwright Antiques has clarified that the Oxford Lavender Attar Scent Bottle c 1850 (LA314374) is genuinely of the period declared with the date/period of manufacture being 1850
Very good. No damage to glass.
