Description

DATE: Georgian, c.1830

The Sea Bean (aka Drift Seed) is a hard seed or fruit adapted for long journeys over water. They are mostly produced by tropical trees, with the aim of colonising new lands - perhaps the best known example is the coconut.

This Georgian scent bottle is carved from a sea bean, which has been hollowed out and gold fittings and lid attached. The medium became popular in the 19th Century, on account of its durability and organic, wood-like nature.
