German Pomander Shaker

A pomander is a ball made of perfumes used from the Middle Ages under the 17th century. It was worn or carried in a vase, also known by the same name, as a protection against infection in times of pestilence or merely as a useful article to modify bad smells.

This German piece hides a shaker inside a flower, in the same way little balls held aromatic scents as pomanders. Beautifully crafted, the leaves fall elegantly and the flower itself has tiny, tiny details.
