I am pleased to offer from my private collection this ONE OF A KIND important historic Victorian medicine Doctor's poison bottle. This unique bottle is hand carved from a solid monolite rock piece of genuine Agate precious stone decorated with silver skull and 2 snakes drinking from a goblet. The silver cap depicting a skull,decorated with genuine old rose cut Bohemian Garnets precious stones in the skull's eyes and around the cap. The bottle is 80mm. It comes with a luxury morocco leather presentation case. This bottle belonged to Dr.William Henry Broadbent-the personal physician to Queen Victoria. This is a link to the tradition of the memento mori - an object designed to remind us that life is brief and that we should seize the moment while we are here. Since the beginning of time,the skull is been used as a symbol of mortality, victory, the ultimate Memento Mori. The skull represented the contemplation of eternity. In Elizabethan England, it was an emblem of bawds, rakes and sexual adventure. Its a symbol men, in particular, have always loved to paint, carve, cast, and wear.
