Memorabilia Monday: Perfume Bottle Pendant

Sometimes, Memorabilia Monday topics happen by chance rather than by plan. In our vault, we have a box labeled “Misc. Memorabilia.” How could you not want to open that one up?

In the box was a smaller one labeled “perfume bottle necklace c. 1920s.” That’s the only description we have. The piece itself is a working perfume bottle made of hammered silver with a Rice Institute seal on the front. The pendant is rather lovely. If it had a silver chain instead of braided nylon rope–a later addition, it would be a pretty stylish piece by today’s standards.
