A handmade vintage sterling silver perfume funnel, made by Leonore Doskow. Practical or indulgent? It all depends on your point of view. A vintage sterling silver perfume funnel to assist you as you pour your favorite perfume from the large bottle into your elegant and exquisite purse-sized atomizer or flask. We are told (although have not tested for ourselves) that sterling, when washed with alcohol, does not retain any fragrance. So you can use it with different perfumes and not muddy the scent.

Made by Leonore Doskow in NYC, this vintage piece has a handle that forms the initials MG. Leonore Doskow make sterling silver novelties, nothing pedestrian like spoons or forks.

It is in excellent condition. This diminutive piece is just over 1 1/2 inches long and the funnel mouth is 7/8 inches wide (3.85 x 2cm). To provide you with some perspective, in one photo is the back of my standard-sized business card 3.5 x 2 inches (8.9 x 5 cm).

FAQ’s

1. Shipping charge overages in excess of $1.00 are always refunded.

2. The price of these items carefully takes into account a host of factors including: age, maker, scarcity, and especially condition. Many are the only example currently for sale. Please feel free to do some comparison shopping.

3. All items are sold on a first come, first serve basis. If you are really serious about something, but need a bit of time to deliberate, please feel free to ask me to RESERVE it for you. I'm happy to reserve items for up to 24 hours. Simply convo'ing me with questions does not let me know the extent of your interest. Frequently multiple people are simultaneously asking about the same piece.

4. Unless otherwise stated, every item offered by Silver Magpies is sterling silver (i.e 925). If a piece is not sterling it is clearly labelled. Occasionally I offer pieces of silver-plate and silver items made from other standards of silver i.e. 800, 830, 900, 950, etc.

5. Each item offered has been personally hand inspected, researched and cataloged. Every piece is accompanied to its new home by a curator card recording details of provenance, origin and identity in words and photographs.

6. In contrast to other dealers, my pieces are never machine buffed to re-create a mirror-bright shine as Silver Magpies cherishes and celebrates the living finish of silver. Every Silver Magpies piece is carefully hand-polished. Patina, that lovely soft, grey sheen indicative of use and care, is the jewel in the crown of antique and vintage silver’s many charms. Discerning collectors prize patina, and its loss through over-zealous hand or machine polishing is to be lamented.
