I bought this item from a humane society thrift shop. It looked very old and reminded me of the Victorian period - the glass is very pretty amethyst color and felt very thin to the touch but seemed quite durable/sturdy. It is very dainty and small in size - approximately 6" height and the widest area or base is is approximately 1" (measurements are through visuals only - I'm still looking for my measuring tape). I think it is a perfume bottle as there were lots of art works with the embossed willow leaves and goldplated on most edges/rims and some gold touch near the embossed area to highlight the carving - if anyone can identify the period on this and what this bottle is about, I'd appreciate the history. Thank you very much.
