The name "Vervelle" is synonymous with top quality goods, as Tiffany is in the USA, 19th century. This stunning and pristine set of 4 large cologne bottles, sterling silver caps with 18k gold layered interior (vermeil) have been preserved perfectly these 150-170 years, and all that's missing is the old original key. A leather-clad wooden case, silk velvet and satin-lined, looks as if it was tucked away for a century and a half. Even the leather is superb on this one. The bottles are very likely Baccarat crystal. Beautifully crafted with facets that gather and refract the light. Truly a fabulous find, just in from France. Belongs in a movie set or scene, doesn't it.
Very good to excellent condition throughout. No chips anywhere, all 4 original stoppers fully intact, and the silver caps, fittings are thick gauge, typical of French silver, have 18k gold layering to the interior areas where perfumes or colognes might tarnish the silver beneath. No dents on any of those lids, either. Finest quality, the Vervelle signature lock plate is your guarantee of it. Measurements noted on photos. The caddy is large, the crystal bottles are heavy. Together, it's 3-4 lbs. A real show-stopper for any collector. It would have been a traveler's set.
