This is so pretty the pictures don't do it justice.
Its 4" tall and 2" wide.
The body is made of the mother of pearl part of a shell. I think. Its been carved open in the front.
There is a intricate floral design in silver on the top and bottom tip.
The top has a silver lid with Mother of pearl inlay that that pops open.
There are 2 loops like for a chain.
That is the extent to my knowledge of this object. I'm thinking its to carry perfumed items, on a chatelaine, but I could be completely wrong.
Any knowledge about this would be appreciated.
