A little bit of filigree locket history...
The filigree locket was popular during the 1800's and often used as a perfume locket by placing perfume-soaked fabric inside the locket. Similar to the "Vinaigrette," which was a small decorative, perforated box that was usually carried at the waist to mask unpleasant smells.
A little beauty in a romantic era... during times of infrequent bathing. It was a time before modern plumbing and sanitation were invented, when women would often sport a nosegay, or a scented locket, to mask the malodorous trails coming from the streets. Ahh... the allure of the era. Much like the Elizabethan ruff worn around the neck to direct odors away from ones own body, the romance continued with the perfumed locket. Today, we can take the beauty from the past in a time when we are afforded many luxuries like a warm soak in the tub.
