    My family recently lost my Mother, but this item left behind serves as evidence of a rich history. She told a story that it belonged to her great grandmother living near Buda-Pest as a gift from her great cousin who was some type of royalty. The piece is approximately 5 inches long 1.75 inches in diameter. Pure 22 carat gold. The perfume decanter is unique in that it has no stopper. The user presses a small lapis latch and the top "pops," open. I've tried to get it appraised but after three attempts I'm left with many questions. Those that have examined it refer to it as a, "next level," piece of jewelry with Swiss (tm) watch like design and engineering. Possibly Edwardian or Russian.

      A 22 kt gold perfume bottle would not be left unmarked if made by Faberge. You would have to try to track down the history of this bottle through your own family via the royalty connection. Due to a total lack of marks, there's no evidence that the bottle was manufactured in Hungary. It may be a one off piece that was commissioned. I can only guess, due to a lack of information.

      I agree completely. The use of lapis lazuili adds so interest as to the pieces origin. Thank you for the commet(s) and, " love this."
