Victorian sterling silver perfume. Made by Henry Matthews in Birmingham in 1897. Hinged heart-form case with flared neck and domed cover. Double-sided floral and scrolled repousse with scrolled cartouches (one engraved with the initials of a sweetheart past, and one vacant, destined for the initials of the next recipient). Side hinged with gilt interior. Bottle also heart form with stopper in green glass. A heart in a heart—a practical vessel that is also rich in metaphoric possibilities. Silver fully marked. Condition: Minor chipping to glass. Silver very good.

Overall dimensions: H 3 1/8 x W 2 1/4 x D 1 1/4 in. Weight (silver only): 1.3 troy ounces. #BR503
