Seller: momandpopcybershop (5.963) 100%, Location: Houston, Texas, Ships to: Worldwide, Item: 323453797948 Antique Thomae Sterling Blue Enamel Perfume Bottle Flask Silver Guilloche Floral More than just a functional object, this diminutive vintage perfume bottle, flacon or flask by Charles Thomae, in sterling silver and enamel, is a Work of Art. Elegant, sophisticated and highly detailed, it has patterns of wavy lines under the guilloche enamel and on top, a big, lush hand-painted flower with a profusion of buds and leaves. It is really charming. And it is an object that is simply a pleasure to hold in your hand. The flower, buds, leaves and stems are lush, in lovely pastel shades of rose, yellow and green, accented by brown, black and blue. The guilloche enamel background is in an ethereal shade of blue, with complex patterns providing contrast and the illusions of texture and depth, making the flowers stand out strikingly as if floating languidly above. A border of plain black enamel surrounds it, framing and giving it a finished look, like a painting. Just look at it - this little scent bottle is so appealing. It measures about 1-3/4" by 1-1/8" by about 5/16" deep. The bottle cap, to which the dauber is attached, is about 5/16" diameter. It weighs 22.2 grams. The bottle has a pleasing, slightly bulging shape. It is signed on the back "Sterling" below a distinctively shaped cartouche with a maker's mark centered with fancy conjoined letters "CT" that is one of the signatures of Charles Thomae of Massachusetts. (Penultimate photo.) Thomae began his business in 1920, making quality objects in sterling silver and karat gold, taking pride in fine craftsmanship, including artistry in enamel. This Art Deco perfume flask is an excellent example of his work. The flask is in Very Good vintage condition and working order with just dirt, scratches and tarnish as expected for its age. There is no damage to the enamel beyond very slight surface roughness at a couple corners and no consequential dents or dings in the silver. It has a mild lingering scent of perfume. The flacon has a lovely vintage patina; cleaning and polishing are left to the buyer's discretion. There are the usual slight manufacturing imperfections in the enamel, mentioned only for completeness, including minuscule bubbles, pitting and or depressions and tiny dark spots here and there (likely migrated specks of tarnish). Absolutely nothing of consequence, as I hope you can tell in the (enlarged) photos. The dauber threads on and off as it should, closing securely. Beautifully made accessories like this one conjure images of a more refined past and this lovely little perfume flask carries a distinctive whiff of history, romance and sophistication. It would make a sensational gift, although I doubt you will want to part with it yourself, and will come to you in a gift box, just in case. You just don't see that many of these fine old flasks and this one by an important maker is a superb example.
