A fantastic little collector’s item. A rare 16th century silver bottle, tiny size, probably for perfume oil or holy water. The detachable screw top contains a space inside for either a cork or dip stick. The body is finely engraved with hatched ornament typical of the mid to late 16th century.
Weight 20 grams.
Height 6.5cm (to the top), 4.3cm (to top of body). Base measures 3.2cm x 2.2cm.
A rare little gem.
Marks. Small articles of this date were not usually marked however there is a cypher stamped on the base, it looks like a “clover leaf”, probably the maker’s mark.
This charming little bottle is in very good condition with moderate signs of wear to be expected from an article of this age. The engraving is sharp and the screw mechanism works very well. The little cross at the top is slightly “not straight” and the seam of the bottle cap has opened slightly.
