Antque Chinese Silver Amulet Fragrance Box Pendant Chatelaine w/ Gem BeadsAntque Chinese Silver Amulet Fragrance Box Pendant Chatelaine w/ Gem BeadsAntque Chinese Silver Amulet Fragrance Box Pendant Chatelaine w/ Gem Beads

Here's a true treasure from the Qing Dynasty. This Chinese silver box chatelaine was used as a fragrance carrier. It was worn on a belt or clothing or hung from the curtains around an enclosed platform bed. It was used by both men and women.

The fragrance box is two-sided with beautiful repousse work. One side is an intricate floral with fine beadwork around the edge. The other side shows two scholarly men holding what looks like an abacus. Each side is perforated with small holes so that the cotton inside could release its pleasant fragrance.

The box was made to open by removing the loop. These fragrance boxes were not opened often so the perfume needed to last a long time.
(We haven't opened the box.)

This piece measures 5 inches long. The box itself is 3/4 inch across by 1 1/8 inch high. It's 1/4 inch thick. The top hook is decorated with a bat which represents good fortune. Bead dangles at the bottom are genuine turquoise and carnelian. The silver was acid tested and is sterling silver. The piece weighs 16.3 grams.

This is in excellent antique condition. Circa late 19th century.
