An Edwardian silver perfume bottle by Arthur Joseph Mason, Birmingham 1907, of cylindrical form with chased foliate decoration and glass liner, 6cm high, together with a pair of Edwardian open salts by Joseph & Richard Griffin, Chester 1904, of shell form on three ball feet, each 5cm wide (3)
Salts: Good order, No signs of splitting, denting or repair. Some slight bending to the rims. Moderate scratching to the ball feet consistent with use.
Bottle: Good order, there is some denting, one approx. 1cm wide to the cover above the hinge, and two to the rim of the base. Some scratching and wear to the exterior. Cover opens smoothly and shits securely, but does leave a slight gap at the seam. Green glass liner interior in tact, some chips to the glass stopper, but in working order. The liner is seemingly stuck in the container. It does appear that there is a seam at the base of the bottle which may detach and release the liner, however it does appear to be stuck on, possibly due to a build up of silver polish. The liner and stopper do not match, and we suspect that the stopper is a replacement.
