Description
Baccarat - toilet or whiskey bottle, Louis XVI style cut, engraved and mounted in solid silver - Crystal, Silver
France - Late 19th century

Toiletry bottle in Baccarat crystal with sterling silver mount, 1890-1900.
Beautiful luxurious production in Louis XVI style, with cut-engraved decoration (fluted, laurel garlands and ribbon bows for the crystal, wrapped rushes for the silver mount).

Sterling silver, formerly vermeil, has the Minerva hallmark and the goldsmith hallmark.
The crystal is an old Baccarat production without signature.

Very nice quality of manufacture (total weight of solid silver, fine décor), our bottle is a luxury production

Very good condition; no chip or accident on the bottle. Very light white veil at the bottom.

Height: 14 cm
Weight of the silver lid: 62 g
=> totally insane, that's the weight of a silver tumbler, used just for a cap.

Note: we will later put on sale the other parts of this set.
