Victorian Female Body Perfume Bottle

Recently added to my collection is this rare Victorian perfume bottle in the shape of a female body.  Soon to be incorporated into an assemblage necklace, so keep a weathered eye on Metal Corset for its debut.

l'Esprit de Dieu

Newly listed to Metal Corset are these breathtaking religious assemblage earrings created by combining several rare antique treasures.

An antique silver tone Art Deco paste Saint Esprit or Holy Spirit pendant has been divided in two and each half suspends from a hand forged sterling silver earring wire.

The half with the dove is connected to an antique Art Deco paste connector. Suspending from the other half is an antique French Art Nouveau Jesus/Marie reliquary locket ex voto.

These earrings measure approximately +- 2.5" from the bend of earring to bottom of pendant/locket.
