Stunning antique late 19th century octagonal tea caddy (or scent bottle) in hand painted gilt and blue with gorgeous motifs. This porcelain canister is in dazzling condition considering it being crafted around the 1880's. Rectangular form with canted corners.
The design of this piece exudes'less is more'. It would be a wonderful addition to your kitchenalia or boudoir collection or fit right into almost any interior as a stand alone piece. It is a rather large, heavy decanter in the style of sèvres. There's no makers mark on this flacon so dating and attributing it is honestly quite difficult. The paint only wore slightly off in a minimal amount of spots.
Bottle and stopper are undamaged; no ships or cracks. Truly spectacular condition and a unique collectors item. Height: 14,5 cm or 5.7 inches.
Width: 10 cm or 3.9 inches. Depth: 7 cm or 2.8 inches. The item "Antique French Tea Caddy / Porcelain Gold & Blue / 1880's / Perfume Bottle 5.7" is in sale since Thursday, September 23, 2021.
