    Colonial Silver Pomander

    Walked onto the site turned on the F22 and started swinging. This was in my first hole. I don't know what it is yet but I'm pretty sure it's old, silver and hand engraved. I'm sure someone can tell me what it is pretty quick. I can't complain about my silver coin drought with finds like this one though

    EDIT: This has been identified. It's called a Pomander and here is a link to more info and a similar piece

    I think it's called Katalina jewelry. They incorporated a bell and shaker into the design. I've seen some from the '50's that are similar, but yours does look older. I'm sure someone here will know...they know everything about anything!!

    Love the silver hand engraved item. I have no idea what it was used for but it could easily pre-date the Civil War. I could also very well be a Banner Find once we get an ID on it. Lovely item!!

    very nice
    Remember its not the treasures we find or the length of the journey. But the fact that when we are done we can look back at our life and smile with a satisfied feeling that we enjoyed the trip. So always "Keep Swinging And Keep Smiling"

    There appears to be a line around the middle of it in the last picture- does it open - if so it may be some kind of a sensor ,
    for incense or perfume or something - the openings on the end suggest this to me .

    Wow, look at the holes in the bottom in the shape of tears. The craftsmanship is stunning. Thanks for posting the new pics. As far as I'm concerned this is a Banner find and once we get an ID I hope it will easily make it up there. Simply beautiful hand engraved piece of OLD silver sir!

    Good call on the lines. It unscrews into four sections. Wow
