Thanks!

Super sweet bottle Liam !

I do not have one like it, but have seen very similar.

Small Turquoise and Coral cabochons set in silver Liam. That looks like a stone face to the front and reverse on the bottle. I can't place the type of stone for sure.. I can find out though, and will let you know.

I will have to hunt some down that are similar to yours so as to help you compare, and give you some idea of value. 

If I remember correclty from seeing other similar ones, seems like 19th century.

I really like it !  Grin

Liam,

Here is one just listed that appears to look a lot like yours. I like the way the silver body on yours was assembled better than this one..

Also this one has a missing stone and the front and reverse is only enamel.

Does not specify the type of metal.

I forgot to ask if yours is silver, brass or copper ?

They are starting the bidding out at 99.00.

Oh.., after asking a few lapidary friends, I think it has been decided that the stone on the front and reverse on your bottle is likely Calcite Onyx.
