Old World Charm – Awadh Perfume Purse

An Awadh noblewoman’s ittar-perfume purse. Lucknow, early 1900s.

“As she walked past the little silver purse no larger than her palm, filled with a ball of ittar-soaked silk-cotton, jingled to the rhythm of her sway, beckoning …enticing the all the eyes in the room”

 

This charming device of romance is just one of the many beautiful diaphanous things from that old world that we have lost altogether in this world of instant gratification.

This piece that is a a concept as much as it is a material item may be acquired from WOVENSOULS.COM here.
