This is a pair of very unusual antique gilt bronze perfume aroma dispensers/Incense burners. As odors from both bodies and the environment were especially strong in the 19th century prior to modern bathing and plumbing, many ways wearer used to mask the unpleasant odors. The more affluent households used perfume and incense to make these conditions. Presented here is a pair of perfume dispensers, quite rare, that were used in a prominent home to add to the ambience of a 19th century home. The handles each have a maiden attached and the main form has gorgeous faces on the bowl. The details continue through the multi part base with further fish and ram head forms. You won't soon find another pair as these as they are rare.
