Here I show you a very nice vintage silver gilt filigree fish pendant with a little box. The fish is very movable and has two kind turkoois eyes. Perhaps it was used for some personal memory or freguance?? Do you know where this kind of pendants where used for?
That this little fish (5.5 x 1.6 cm) is not so allone I placed it next to my other earlier showed cloisonne (also Chinese) fish.

    I am thinking pills or a vile of powder like laudanum in a pouch? Since its Chinese...that's very common.

    These are called scent boxes, a women would place a piece of cotton doused with her perfume inside of them and wear it as a necklace or attached to a purse or clutch or something
