Napoleon III Era Ormolu Gilt Chatelaine Perfume Scent Bottle Stanhope

This brass gilt vintage stanhope perfume bottle is crafted with a short metal chain and large round bail. This wearable perfume bottle has a round shape with a metal crown lid with a cork stopper. It was made for sale as a tourist souvenir for the English market. There is a ring of metal leaves that is below the metal sheath that is around the opening for the cork stopper. This stanhope perfume bottle is a circa late 1800s souvenir. This bottle measures approximately 2 3/16" tall, 1 1/16" wide and weighs 12 grams. It is in extremely fine condition with only a few minor dings or dents from normal careful use. Even the original cork stopper is in good condition. The stanhope viewer is located on the top of the crown. The stanhope view is a microscopic view of six vintage photos from Llanwrtyd Wells in Wales. The view is is clear and easily seen. A dark colored splash in the balsam can be seen in the bottom right but only encroaches to the outside border of the photo.
