This earthenware scent bottle is designed to be hung from a chatelaine, or worn as a pendant or brooch. Whichever way it was worn, the wearer would be continually enveloped with the scent emanating from the pierced top. At the base is a brass enclosed cork to keep the scent in and allow replenishment when needed. The decoration on both sides is hand gilded and painted flowers and inside there is still the original sponge with its traces of perfume. It measures 50 mm (2 inches) from the bottom of the cork to the top, 36 mm (1.75 inches) across and is 20 mm (.75 inches) deep. There are a few small areas of discolouration and some crazing. c 1880.
