Wonderful old perfume holder or even an ink well if desired. Dates to the late 1800s and is made in France. High quality piece that would have been a standard vanity item for any woman of wealth and social status. The bottom has a hallmark Made in France. No real condition issues that I can see. Nice velvet lined inside, one small spot on top as shown.. Very true to the photos. Measures 9" in length by 4" wide by almost 5" tall. Part of the perfume collection I have consigned.
