Both sides of this antique Chinese pomander have matching pierced carvings of swirling fauna with a butterfly. By sliding the matching jade bead up, the two pieces of the pomander can easily be separated enough to slip a perfume soaked cloth inside. Occasionally worn around a woman's neck, pomanders were also hung in a room add a pleasing scent.

The pomander alone is 2.5 inches across at the widest point, 2 inches high and almost 1 inch thick.
