Fab Antique Silver & Ruby Crystal Perfume Bottle * French

Fab Antique Silver & Ruby Crystal Perfume Bottle * French
This gorgeous crystal and silver gilt perfume bottle is one of the highest quality pieces I've ever had. The ruby glass is all hand cut with a faceted design and flowers are engraved over that. The gilded silver bottom and top are both chased with the same flowers. The top makes a half turn to release, a bayonet style closure (you line up the pins with the openings and then twist). The ground glass stopper is a perfect fit and I'm sure is the original. The silver (top and bottom) is stamped with the boar's head hallmarks used on French 800/1000 pure silver. It has the maker's mark for Gaston Bardiés. He worked at 13 rue des Fontaines in Pa...

★ Antique Carved Ivory Pin Cushion / Disc * C1850

★ Antique Carved Ivory Pin Cushion / Disc * C1850
This antique carved ivory piece is a pin cushion in disc form. This allowed the pins to be pushed flush into the sides so it wouldn't snag other items in the work bag. This one also has a velvet lined open center on one side so that it could be used as a pin cushion while sitting on a table. The cushion around the sides is dark red silk and is stuck with some old steel pins. The ivory has a small chip in the area surrounding the velvet, but is otherwise perfect. It measures almost 2" in diameter and has a silk ribbon tab at the top. The ivory grain pattern and patina are lovely....
