I have this video that I keep on my phone. I’ve been looking at it a lot lately as the temperatures outside have been hanging out on the south side of the zero. I took it last summer, on one of those misty, orange, purple and blue sunsets, in it you can hear a cacophony of bird song and even see a few flitting across the screen. It makes me hopeful. Just like this wonderful pendant, lush and verdant and hopeful.
This fantastic hand crafted perfume bottle was made in a time when things weren’t packaged in single use plastics, a time when you took your tiny pendant to the apothecary and they filled it with your chosen scent (or maybe the only one that they had), then you attached it to your chatelaine and you applied it liberally, because you probably only got one bath a week on a good week!
The inside is fully lined in glass and it has its original glass stopper that’s faceted on top. The inside is washed in gold. This cylindrical pendant measures 59.5 mm from top to bottom and 15.5 mm in diameter, it weighs 18.8 grams. Made in France in the Art Nouveau style in about 1890.
This wonderful tiny silver French bottle is repoussed with a full scene of two beautifully detailed birds on a blackberry bush, they seem interested in a little bee that’s bumbling by, maybe they think it looks like a tasty meal? It’s exquisite. Truly.
