ANTIQUE NUMBER SA1040730: Antique Victorian Silver Mizpah Heart Perfume Scent Bottle

Antique Victorian Silver Mizpah Heart Perfume Scent Bottle

£375    $487    €445
We love unique pieces here at Lancastrian, and this one certainly doesn't disappoint. A beautiful antique silver engraved scent bottle featuring engraving throughout and the word 'MIZPAH' on the front. The bottle has been expertly made into a love heart shape and has a twist cap top so you can put your own scent in it. The pendant has a large jump ring, which lets you attach it to your favourite chain.
 
During the 18th and 19th centuries, scent bottles were beautiful and often expensive flasks available primarily to women of means. They might make their own scents or have them blended especially for them by perfumers and then decant them into their favourite fragrance in containers.
 
Mizpah is a Hebrew word that means 'watchtower' and is interpreted as 'May God watch over you.' Mizpah jewellery is worn as a token of love or friendship and first became popular during the Victorian era.
 
This quality and rare piece would make the perfect gift or a great addition to any collection.

This pretty antique scent bottle remains in good condition. The silver is bright with a recent polish; the pendant has a few small dents on either end of the item; however, it isn't too noticeable.

This scent bottle pendant would make an excellent addition to your antique jewellery collection or a superb gift for a loved one.
