Here's a beautiful victorian era scent bottle from around the 1700's or early 1800's, but from what I've gathered I'm thinking more like 1825 if made by a glass blower by the name Benjamin Haines who spent some time at the Boston & Sandwich glass company. It's inunbelievablecondition with all of it's rigaree intact. Cobalt blue, small spherical body, long neck with two bulges or collars. There's four lengths of rigaree running from the bottom to the top collar and pinched at each of the two collars for a total of eight tabs. Those are what's usually damaged. I've seen a clear bottle with clear rigaree but damaged, with two tabs broken off and a piece of rigaree missing. This bottle is referenced in McKearin/Wilson and is actually the one pictured on plate 102 #2. It's 2 7/16" tall with no damage or repairs. There's some minor highpoint wear probably due to the bottle not standing too steadily. Formerly of the George McKearin collection. I've got a few of these unique scents in different shapes, colors & sizes. I really don't care to sell this one but if someone's in need of a great scent (smelling bottle) for their collection & the price is right, it's theirs. If you have any questions you can give me a call or just send me a message, I'll be glad to chit-chat about this or others I have. Thanks for stoppin by.
