Victorian Amber Glass Scent Vial Necklace

$300

A tiny late Victorian amber glass flask with a silver screw top designed to hold perfume. 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 hangs from a new sterling silver chain.
