Victorian Inspired Vintage Vinaigrette Marcasite Heart Cameo Sterling Locket

Beautiful reproduction of a Victorian era Vinaigrette heart locket that hangs from an 18" chain. This vintage locket measures 1 1/4" and opens, revealing a space for a little scent pillow. Victorian women would wear these lockets and spray the pillow with perfume. This was to hold up to their nose when passing waste and debris that was casually discarded out the windows and onto the streets. They would sniff to protect them from the odor. Great way to wear oils that you may not be able to wear on the body as well. The cameo is Mother of Pearl on black with marcasite accent stones.
