This fascinating bottle was made to resemble a violin resting on a solid base.

The body of the bottle is decorated with a continuous banding at the edge, much like the inlaid purfling on a fine instrument.

The shoulders are strengthened with an applied brackets, and the stopper was crowned with a cast finial.

The hallmark on the bottom does not appear to be English, but we have been able to identify it.

Probably Continental. 19th century

Height: 9”; Width: 5”; Depth: 1-5/8”

Price: $125
