Description

DATE: Victorian, c.1880

An adorable antique scent bottle with MIZPAH in a sea of royal blue enamel. It dates from the late 19th Century and remains in great condition. Mizpah jewellery symbolises a bond between two estranged parties, with God as their witness. Its first usage (Gen 31.49-50) refers to it as a pillar of stones set up by Jacob and Laban. The pillar of stones acted as a witness to the bond between the two men.
