These lovely hand painted antique dual miniature perfume bottles are a collector's delight. The gold colored metal caps are tight and well secured. We do not know the provenance. Could be Italian, could be Asian. They measure slightly less than 2 inches in height. and certainly are unusual.
The two birds, one on each bottle, face one another. One bird on the right, has a white head. On the left bottle, the other bird has a black head. i do not know if this was intentional, or the black on the head of the bird on the left bottle, was accidentally stained. I mention this for clarity of description and to call the buyer's attention to the condition of this antique. My guess is that these were made for traveling and not for a vanity table.
