A beautiful and very decorative French early 19th century hand painted and gilt porcelain bottle by Darte Frères, Paris. This square porcelain piece is raised on gilt porcelain swan shaped feet. Rich colors and gilt of flowers, scrolls and foliate, even a birds nest, adorn each side and top with scrolled heart shaped borders. The molded gilt porcelain neck is topped by a removable topper which is likewise decorated. At the bottom is the 'Darte Palais Royal No. 21' mark stenciled in red. All original gilt.
