Beautiful WILLIAM III silver gilt scent flask with screw-off stopper and of good gauge of silver.
Maker: Pierre Labrosse. London circa 1700. 
This maker was accredited in an article on Huguenot refugees from Anjou written by Brian Beet in the Silver Society Journal, Autumn 1998, pages 12-15.

The flask stands on a pedestal base and is styled in a flattened balluster form with Chinoiserie panels of figures and foliate decoration and screw-off stopper which fits very tightly.
The maker's mark is stamped on the base of the flask and is very crisp.

This is a very striking and unusual piece and could well be used today.

Provenance: 
A Private collection.  
Alastair Dickenson Ltd.

Height: 2.4 inches (6.2cm)
Weight: 0.9 troy ounces. (28 grams)
