Rare Macintyre Miniature Birds Egg Perfume /  Scent Bottle 1888

RARE MACINTYRE MINIATURE BIRDS EGG SCENT / PERFUME 1888

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!
