Antique Hm Silver Scent Perfume Flask With Salts Bottle Henry Matthews C1909 For Sale
Antique HM silver scent perfume flask with salts bottle Henry Matthews c1909
Ofering an antique Edwardian silver smelling bottle case with salts
Hallmarked cast and repousséd silver smelling bottle case containing Dr Mackenzie's carbolic smelling salts bottle.
Beautifully decorated with a floral and scroll border around a vacant cartouche on each side, with internal gilding to interior.
Clip-on hinged lid. Case opens into two halves on a hinge.
Measures approx. 7.5 cm (3") long x 5.7cm (2&1/4") wide. Silver case alone weighs 1.39 troy oz (43 grams).
Sheffield import marks for 1909. Sponsor's mark HM for Henry Matthews.
Condition good overall. Both hinges are good. The cap snaps shut securely. There are a handful of very small shallow dings and surface wear on the cap surface, and similarly on both cartouches, one approx. 4cm long, which are only just noticeable. The decoration is in excellent condition and the gilt interior is bright and fresh. The smelling bottle is probably not original to the case. It is in good shape, with just one or two tiny fleabites. The bottle cap is lost and edges of the paper labels are a little worn. Some of the original salts remain.
Pretty and once useful in its day!
Thanks for looking and happy offerding!
