Early 19th Century Agate Scent Vial Necklace


An incredibly beautiful piece of early Victorian or late Georgian perfume technology. This miniature vessel once hung from a chatelaine with a collection of other household tools. Its mates might have been scissors, buttonhooks, keys, perhaps a mesh coin purse, but now it stands alone and is ready for you to fill it with your favorite scent.
