“An elegant woman without perfume is like a rose without fragrance”, wrote a columnist of the Everylady's Journal in 1910 (No. 1, p. 29). By the middle of the 19th century Russia had its own perfume companies, producing a wide range of perfumes and eau de cologne to compete with French imports. Porcelain perfume bottles became an integral part of every fashionable interior to the same extent as porcelain figurines. The Imperial Porcelain Factory and privately owned porcelain manufactories produced all sorts of vessels, ranging from imitations of precious oriental bottles to florid creations with stucco flowers and painted motifs.

This highly decorative bottle with its angular silhouette lines and fine gilt floral ornamentation is a superlative example of such porcelains produced by Popov manufactory at the time.
