Victorian Silver Scent Vials

This collection of scent vials all probably once hung from chatelaines - a now-obsolete keychain-like accessory that Victorian women would attach to their dresses, belts, or aprons to keep everyday objects at the ready. Ladies would hold all kinds of things on chatelaines: buttonhooks, tiny sewing kits in silver containers, some sort of writing implement, and even tiny containers like these for their perfume. On new from a sterling silver chains. Sold individually.
