    This is a tiny tear drop or poison holder or something else that is silver with a cross and stone. The top opens and you can put something tiny inside of it.
    I'm not sure what this really was made for but it looks quite old and fancy. My aunt had it at her house and we found it in her desk.
    Any ideas?

      Probably for sniffing tobacco:)

      Maybe for holding a slip of paper with a prayer written on it.
      It’s beautiful!
      I think the cross speaks to a religious purpose.

      Thank you Malkey, Trey and Watchsearcher, you are all so kind. I guess it's not so important to know the exact use but it makes for a great conversation piece. It sure is a well made older piece.
