This listing is for a lovely handmade antique bosom sachet from the very late 1800's. This is such an exceptionally rare treasure! Bosom sachet's or personal sachet's were used to cover the odors of the Victorian era and one would scent the tiny cotton inside with either powder or perfume, then tuck the lovely in her bosom to enjoy as her body heat dispersed the scent.
The outer case is a sweet, perfectly hand embroidered little silk doily pouch, which may have been white at one time, but has aged to a lovely ecru. It has a slit in back (envelope style) that holds a tiny pink satin pouch that is open on one side. Inside the pink silk satin pouch is a very old piece of cotton, that would have been scented.
I have left everything intact for you to experience this little treasure just as its been since the 1890's.
The outer case and the pink satin inner case is in perfect condition, but the piece of scented cotton could easily turn to dust. A lovely addition to your collection of Victoriana or a very special gift!
The bosom sachet measure's 3 1/4" across.

My photo's show the sachet from all angles.
