Antique Victorian Decorative Perfume Bottle Pendant

Perfume can be dated back thousands of years. The vessels that go along with these precious scents are considered just as valuable as what they hold. The Victorian Era saw a rise in popularity and an expansion in design of these mysterious little pieces of history. The late 1800s saw a style change in the ways of perfume bottle design, that’s just around the time this trinket was made. 

This antique Victorian silver perfume bottle pendant was handcrafted in England, around 1890. It features decorative repousse metalwork in a timeless floral and striped motif. The original screw-down stopper is still intact. The bottle is round with a link chain connecting to the pendant’s shoulders that likely would have swung on a lady’s chatelaine. Overall, it measures 73 x 39 x 14 mm and weighs 13.3 grams. There is a hallmark on this piece and it has been acid tested. 

Between vinaigrettes and perfume etuis, Victorian ladies were smelling quite ravishing. Vinaigrettes were meant to mask body odor and to ward off disease during a time of serious illnesses. It was also a time when foul smell was thought to be the culprit in spreading these diseases. Not only would a perfume make a woman smell lovely, it also worked as a reviver when she fainted.
