This is a beautiful rare antique English Victorian sterling silver perfume / scent bottle, complemented with antique Albert watch chain  & fob.
The length of the chain is 15" & the perfume bottles measures 5.8cm excluding little chain.
The whole piece weighs 56g & the perfume bottle on it's own 14g.
The perfume bottle is fully hallmarked makers John Millward Banks, Birmingham 1890 and the chain is hallmarked with the lion passant on every link although quite worn. The fob is hallmarked makers William James Dingley, Birmingham 1902 & the t-bar a different hallmark of makers Henry Pope, Birmingham 1904. The whole piece is in very good condition for it's age. The dog clip is slightly loose but still closes none-the-less.

There are some light surface scratches and a patina, to be expected on antique silver items which have been carefully used and well cared for. The necklace is not made from brand new pieces of silver, any scratches and signs of wear add to it's character.
Supplied in a fabric drawstring bag.
