The bottle measures (with stopper inserted) 4 1/8" high, the top opening is 1/2" in diameter and the base is 1 1/2 in diameter. The bottle is in nice condition with the exception of some internal damage (smooth hairline on one side and smooth fracture on the other side) on the inside neck of the bottle not visible on the outside as it is covered with the silver neck.
The lower portion of the bottle is in excellent condition with no chips or cracks. The sterling overlay is excellent condition on the bottle with no noted damage. The stopper has minor damage and loss to the sterling overlay (see photos).
