Condition


This antique cologne bottle is a very good gauge of silver, fine quality and in excellent presentation condition.

The piece has some surface scratches and blemishes as to be expected in keeping with age.

Partial hallmarks struck to the surface of the bottle are very clear; it is anticipated that the hot enamel overlay is covering the date letter hallmark.


Reflections in photographs may detract from the true representation of this piece of antique silverware.
