Description
Delicate gold-plated silver locket with pierced front inspired by an early 17th century pomander now held in the Victorian and Albert Museum. Originating in the 13th century pomanders, from the French pomme d'ambre - an apple of amber, were balls made for perfumes, such as ambergris , musk, or civet. The pomander was worn or carried as a protection against infection or merely as a useful article to modify bad smells. By the 16th century elaborate pierced cases also known as pomanders were crafted in silver and gold to hold scents and these were hung from a neck-chain or belt, or attached to the girdle. Sometimes they contained several partitions, in each of which was placed a different perfume.

Despite being delighted with the locket, disappointed that the presentation box was ordinary and there was no information as to what these lockets were originally used for and the type of metal etc..a description as used in marketing would have been good when item is a gift.
