Napoleon III Antique French Silver-Gilt and Crystal Scent Set of 3 Bottles XIXe:
$870.00

A Gorgeous Napoleon III Scent Set. Antique French Silver-Gilt and Crystal by ‘Maitre Orfèvre’ Silversmith Maillard Freres & Vazou M V.

Three Lovely Crystal Set Bottles with Silver and Vermeil Stoppers, resting in a Glorious Gilt Stand featuring Napoleonic motifs raised on three Egyptian figurines supported by three lion paw feet.

The case that holds the bottles is detailed with Napoleonic motifs including patterned bands with Egyptian water lilies, laurels, and three winged victories standing atop fluted columns on elaborate base, all Egyptian symbols hearkening back to Napoleon Bonaparte's Campaign in Egypt. The gilt framework, which holds the 3 crystal flask, is delicately cut away to reveal the darker colour enhancing the whole effect and outlining the lovely carvings.

Each etched crystal flask is delicately carved with leaves pattern. Each flask retains its original stoppers. The crystal bottles are probably Baccarat or St. Louis.

Each stopper as well as the stand is gilded with gold on the interior (vermeil).

The scenery and shape are typical of the 19th century Empire French style.
