18k Gold. Sterling & Fine silver. Black Resin.
Most popular in 18th & 19th century Europe, proceeding the time of handbags, women brought their possessions with them in the form of a “Chatelaine.” Carried by women of all statuses, chatelaines were ornate pieces of jewellery that usually hung from the waist and held useful household appendages. One type of appendage was called a “pomander” or scent bottle, which was filled with musk, cinnamon or cloves and was thought to ward off disease.
This pomander was created for the “Journey Through Time” exhibition at Mobilia Gallery in Boston, Massachusetts. It is based off a style most popular in France during the 1820s in which a single scent bottle was hung from a plaque at the waist. Through the use of ancient techniques and contemporary design ascetics, this piece seeks to honor the traditions of the past while staying relevant in today’s world.
