Dijon

From the home of mustard comes another tale...


It is hard to imagine a time when spices were so precious that their containers were designed as jewelry or a rare accessory. Yet, that is what this pomander is; it's name is derived from the French, pomum ambrae, referring to perfumes and perfumed ointment.
