Superb Early Parfumerie with Chandelier and Mirrors for the French Market

Lot Number: 
12" (30 cm.) h. x 18"l. x 9"d. The light-wood open-front shop has an unusual three-sided back and two side facades that give dimension and a sense of greater size to the tiny size. The walls,of cobalt blue paper,are decorated lavishly with gold paper borders and raised-construction gilt papers that suggest carving (especially notable on the side wall frames). There are two mirrors,and liberal floral and cherub decoupage. There are three curved-front shelves at the sides and back,and unusual stepped shelves at the sides of the front counter. An ormolu and glass chandelier hangs above,a porcelain lady doll stands in attendance,and the shop is fitted with glass and paper mache perfume and toiletry jars and bottles. The exterior has original old paper-covered surface. Excellent condition. For the French market,circa 1875.
