An antique Chinese Qing Dynasty silver fragrance carrier made into a  pendant necklace.  The bottle has a screw on lid with a Foo Lion that sits atop the bottle.  Three hollow silver fruit charms dangle from the bottom of the bottle.  The length of the necklace is 21 inches.  A hook attaches the chain ends in the mid front.  Hanging from the sides are more fruit charms, one of which is a pomegranate.

This fragrance bottle was originally most likely the centerpiece of a grooming kit.  In the early 20th century many components like this one were reworked into jewelry for the western market.  

The Qing Dynasty was the final imperial dynasty in China, lasting from 1644 to 1912.  This fragrance carrier likly dates to the late 19th century or the first decade of the 20th century.

Total weight 63 grams.
