Description

DATE: Victorian, 1891

A cool Victorian vinaigrette pendant modelled as a hemisphere and studded with turquoise cabochons. The back opens to store a scent-soaked piece of fabric or foam and the front features tiny little holes, allowing the wearer to disguise unpleasant odours that they might have happened across with something sweeter... It's modelled in 9 karat gold with hallmarks precisely dating it to the year 1891.
