A Chelsea scent bottle modelled with a shepherdess wearing a flowered dress with blue and green sleeves. She is seated before a pedestal on which rests a gourd-shaped vase, with applied flowers. She holds a lamb with its forelegs resting on her knee, with another seated beside her. The hollow base is gilt with two doves in flight with a green dentil border, and gilt metal mounts and a squirrel stopper.
