Object of the day: French enamel scent bottle

Antique French Enamel Scent / Perfume Bottle Flask

19th century

An antique 19th century French enamel on copper scent / perfume bottle. Charming scene of a lady dressed in a blue and pink gown with a small bird on her shoulder. Set on a dark background accented by foliage. Exquisite enamel work! Hinged gilded silver mounts. 

Retains a stopper. 

Measures 2 1/2" in length. 

In good antique condition, there is a tiny flea-bite nip located on the back of the scent bottle near the edge of the base.
