Such a pretty old thing, but it's imperfect and thus priced to go. The elegant 3-bottle scent caddy is from the Napoleon III era (c.1850-70) and has elaborate brass stringing, pencil edging and un-monogrammed cartouche. Still has the original key to the working lock. But on its trip from France, poorly packed, 2 of the stoppers broke. No other damage, and the 3 bottles are in excellent shape without chips. But now this nice set displays with abbreviated stoppers as you can see. Still, it's very pretty. If I were still traveling to Paris often, I'd surely find replacement stoppers. Baccarat made loads of them. Yes, I am quite sure these are jobbed from Baccarat. The gold enamel starts are even still nice. But sometimes a travel accident, particularly if not packed correctly. Always a risk.
Good to very good condition, the box is really beautiful, has one corner round at back that seems off-set slightly (see images), but no lifts to the inlaid brainwork, no missing stringing, and the grain of the thick wood casket is gorgeous. Key works the lock. The 3 original scent bottles all fit their recessed fittings perfectly, and yet we've had a shipping accident that broke 2 of the stoppers. No damage to the body of the 3 bottles, just the 2 stoppers. You'll note they look like they fit lower, it's because the long stem of the stopper is missing from them. One is fine. Measurements are noted on the photos.
