Antique silver framed perfume bottle pendant (with chain rings) South Africa
The lid fits firmly, but is removable. It originally had a broken long chain, which I took off, intending to replace it. The dealer thought it was probably intended as a perfume bottle pendant due to the faint pink accents on the side of the cream body. The tip and bottom frame are silver, and the top has two rings to attach a chain. There is a ring on the lid that would allow a small chain to be attached to prevent the loss of the lid. Please feel free to ask any questions or for additional pictures. There is no perfume odor in the bottle. I have included a picture of a similar 19th century Chinese bottle for comparison only. There is another example in an Italian museum. I do not have any papers or provenance for the bottle.
