Description

A fabulous antique French perfume carousel in kingwood with ormolu mounts.  It has a mechanical mechanism - you rotate the large gilt bronze knop and the doors rotate around to allow access to the bottles.  The caddy is of sculptured shape and set with further ormolu decorative mounts.  The glass scent bottles are each of a different colour and hand gilded with stars, they are unmarked but in the style of Baccarat.

The bottles are held in fabric lined holders with decorative cords.  These are made to fit each bottle as some will not fit in all the spaces.  The base of the carousel is covered with blue felt.  The bottles are original and of period.  The set dates around the mid to late 19th century, probably third quarter.

The style and luxurious nature is typical of items sold at the Palais Royale.  Unfortunately there are no makers marks, and we have been unable to find another similar example for confirmation.  The lack of other examples does suggest this is a particularly rare find.

 

Condition

Overall it is very good for the period and looks great on display as can be seen.  There are minor nibbles to the edges of the wood in places and a few scratches etc as you would expect.  The fabrics have of course aged and faded with time.  The bottles are all in good order with minor gilt wear and minor nibbles to the stopper pegs.  Base felt is not original
