Houbigant is a Parisian parfumier. Is it small enough for a perfume bottle?

Hi Christine

Its 14.5cms tall so just under 6 inches, it is oval, so that would be quite large for a scent bottle....Kev  8)

That probably depended on who was making their bottle for them at any given time - bottle makers seem to be 10 a centime
