A RARE AND FABULOUS SCENT BOTTLE WITH A SILVER COLLAR AND TOP BY JAMES MACINTYRE & Co IN THE FORM OF A BIRDS EGG
THE SILVER TOP HAS FULL HALLMARKS: 'CS & FS' IN TWO SEPERTARE RECTANGLES, THE LION PASSANT FOR STERLING SILVER, THE DATE LETTER 'O' FOR 1888 & THE ANCHOR FOR BIRMINGHAM
ON THE BASE, CLEARLY MARKED AND VISIBLE IN RED IS 'Rd 20772' - JAMES MACINTYRE & Co REGISTERED THIS DESIGN IN 1885
THE SILVER TOP AND COLLAR WERE FITTED BY CORNELIUS SAUNDERS & FRANK SHEPHERD. THE BUSINESS WAS FOUNDED IN 1869 AND THEY WERE ACTIVE IN HOLBORN CIRCUS, LONDON.
THEIR ITEMS WERE ASSAYED AT VARIOUS LOCATIONS INCLUDING BIRMINGHAM, LONDON AND CHESTER
MACINTYRE WORKED WITH SAUNDERS AND SHEPHERD AROUND THIS TIME AND CREATED A SERIES OF NOVELTY SCENT BOTTLE DESIGNS IN POTTERY AND SILVER
THE BASE COLOUR IS 'DUCK EGG BLUE' WITH HAND PAINTED DETAIL
CONDITION IS GOOD- I HAVE SOLD A FEW OF THESE DELIGHTFUL NOVELTY SCENT BOTTLES IN THE PAST
MOST OF THEM HAVE SOME SLIGHT STAINING AROUND THE SILVER COLLAR -AS DOES THIS ONE
THE HALLMARKS ARE CLEAR AND THE SILVER TOP FITS WELL, WITH A GOOD THREAD. IT STILL RETAINS THE ORIGINAL CORK INSIDE THE TOP OF THE LID
THERE IS SOME TINY AGE RELATED CRAZING TO THE SATIN SHEEN GLAZE- WHICH IS TYPICAL & ONLY REALLY VISIBLE WITH A LOUPE, BUT MENTIONED FOR ACCURACY
MEASURES 2.5cm WIDE - HEIGHT 4.7 cm INCLUDING LID APPROX
WEIGHT 12.8g APPROX
A MOST UNUSUAL VICTORIAN NOVELTY POTTERY & SILVER SCENT WHICH WOULD HAVE AMUSED THE VICTORIAN LADY
A MUST FOR THE COLLECTOR!
