Wonderful silver perfume flask, made in Palestine in the early 1900's. It comes from the Bezalel School of Arts and Crafts, active from 1906 - about 1929. Many of the craftsmen were Yemenite Jewish silversmiths who had a long tradition of working in precious metals, and were especially known for the intricate filigree work as seen here.
The flask is 2 1/4" x 1 1/8" and about 5/8" thick. The top knob screws off and there is still an aroma of perfume. Marked Palestine and 90(0) on the bottom.
There is a depression on one side and a very small dent on the round cap. When I received this, the top was stuck and could not be budged. I believe someone tried too hard to remove the cap. (I was able to remove it with patience and warm water.) Still a beautiful piece with an interesting history.
