Vintage silver perfume amulet from Morocco. Perfume has been an essential part of Arab culture and has many uses and applications.
This type of amulet would typically hang from a Fibula and be filled with a piece of wool soaked in an interesting perfumed substance.
Lots of charm and patina. Great for use as a focal pendant. Really nice etching.
Bail on top. Ready for your favorite dangles on the bottom.
4.25 inches / 10 cm long including dangles. Bail on top. Coin silver + silver (not sterling).
