Seller: Top-Rated Seller beadbrats (2,322) 100%, Location: Bronx, New York, Ships to: Worldwide, Item: 143239520599 Description: The round scent bottle was made in Venice circa 1850 and measure approx. 2.5" high including the topper (1.75" high, excluding the topper) x approx. 1.5" wide. There are 10 portrait or pictorial canes total, 5 on each side, on a mixed color background with swirls of sparkly aventurina (copper specks suspended in glass). This piece has been attributed to Franchini & Bigaglia but I cannot guarantee that. On one side there are three portrait canes, one gondola cane and one which depicts an unidentified bridge. On the other side there are three portrait canes and two "rialto bridge" canes. Regarding the portrait canes there is one religious and three ducal or military canes, two of which are duplicated. The gondola cane might be a signature cane for the Franchini family as is suggested in some books. The ornamental brass fittings are still attached to the bottle along with the top with it's chain attachment. However, the cork or stopper is missing from inside the top so that it does not fit into the bottle neck. There is no damage to either the fittings or the bottle itself which is free from any chips, bruises, cracks, etc. These are large photos so please be sure to enlarge them for the best detail. I will be happy to supply more photos upon request.
