What a clever old-fashioned way to attach something...the good old dependable clothespin. Only this one is made of sterling silver and is attached via silver chain to a miniature sterling silver perfume bottle.
The unlikely duet make a beautiful couple as they can be tucked in a purse, worn as a pendant, or clipped to something.
The perfume bottle measures 1 1/8 by 2 inches. The top screws off. There's some lovely repousse work along the sides. The top is marked STERLING.
The clothespin measures 1 5/8 inches long. It has a clip inside that grips securely to something thin. The chain measures 5 1/4 inches. The entire piece weighs 21.3 grams. It shows minimal wear and is overall in excellent condition...no dents or dings. Circa 1950s.
