Fabulous and extremely rare find features a gorgeous art nouveau cast high raised, puffed and etched Egyptian woman on both sides of the perfume bottle pendent. There is some very minor only tiny flea bites on the face and is otherwise in most excellent condition. There is a dangling row of ruby red color crystals with slight puffed and etched long shaped teardrop findings. The top unscrews and has a nice tight seal. It is marked Napier on the dabber. While I don't see any precious metal marking on the pendent the lovely small oval link chain is marked best I can read 1/20 14K and a letter A is all I can make out, the other letter or symbol trails off. We can guarantee the chain is gold filled. The perfume chamber is empty and there is no scent leading us to believe it was never used or filled.
This very exciting piece measures on pendent 2 5/8'L and 1 1/4'W. Chain is 22'L.
