Vintage Victorian Style Silver Plated Fairytale Book Chain Necklace with Bottle

$600Asking Price


Vintage metal silver plated book chain necklace, with a separate little container or bottle with a screwable lid for holding perfume or oil. Or maybe this was a baptisme necklace and the bottle could hold baptismal water or oil. Although there is a little hole in the bottom of the bottle, it doesn't really leak when filled with liquid, only when you touch the hole, it's probably more a decorative bottle. I never saw a necklace like this before, I think maybe it is custom made. The necklace is decorated with what looks like fairytale figures. Pictured are: *3 sorts of clowns: a Pierrot Clown waving a handkerchief, a Napoleon Clown but he also looks a bit like a Jester, and a funny dancing fellow wearing a what looks like a knight's helmet. *3 sort of 'damsels in destress' One in short prairie dress looking back with her hand in front of her face, one in Jester dress with 'a cleavage' holding something and looking back. And one in her underwear running while holding a fan and looking through binoculars. *2 girls, a toddler with a hat, and an older girl in long dress wearing a bonnet. *also there is a man wearing a tall hat, formal 19th century suit, spurs and something what looks like saber. On the little bottle you see a moon and star, an owl in the moon, a deer and two whippet dogs. All in all a nice little collectors item. length of the whole necklace with bottle is 82cm (32") but the actual necklace length when worn is 66cm (26").
