Full disclosure - the stopper shown in these photos is not original to this bottle. It is one I just happened to have on hand that actually fits. I don't think it belonged to the bottle I took it from, either!
That said, the real star here is this gorgeous little scent bottle, courtesy of the Harrach glassworks in Neuwelt, Bohemia. The thickness of the glass, and the colors used are the deep greens and reds found in Harrach's Formosa decor, but this is mottled, and the green is much more dominant on this piece. It is reminiscent of some of the Loetz paperweight vases, but the colors used, the gold enameled cockatoo and florals, the ground and polished base, and the design number inscribed on the bottom are convincing enough Harrach markers. The bottle (without stopper) is about 4" high, and about 3.5" across.
