Taking a closer look at the item, the Antiques Roadshow expert said: “What do we have here? 

“We got a glass scent bottle, beautifully facet cut and then laid with gold and then this beautiful little cameo. 

“Now, what I loved about this, is that it’s got a naval theme. So you could imagine it being given to an officer’s wife, beautiful present in its time.” 

As for when it was created, Judith continued: “To me, 1760, 1770. And what’s really exciting about that is there was a famous engraver and porcelain decorator called James Giles who was absolutely top of the tree. 

“He was absolutely the most exquisite craftsman. And I think this is all the telltale signs of being by him.”
