antique cut enameled cobalt glass double perfume bottle- $493
One hinged ormolu cap is set with a faceted blue glass “gem,” while the other cap has a smooth green one. I find this fascinating. Quite obviously, the two colors make it easy for the owner to determine which scent was where by sight. However, let’s say one is at the opera, and all of a sudden feels the need for a drop of perfume. Reaching into her bag, most discreetly – houselights dim, milady’s delicate fingertips easily determine which end is Eau d’Cougar, and which is Essence of Old Algiers, simply by feel.
