St. Louis Opaline Perfume Bottle
« on: May 22, 2024, 05:41:43 PM »
I believe this to be a St. Louis, 4"tall perfume bottle from around 1840-50, sadly the stopper's not original. The white is known as "pāte de riz" and the snake in uranium opaline is typical of St.Louis. The worn gilding is what appears to be grape and vine also spots on the snake and lines. The base  has been ground leaving just a remnant of the pontil mark
