|Chinese silver filigree coin motif beads|

Many will no doubt recognize the coin motif, often combined to create enameled silver beads.
I have a hard time thinking this little bottle may have been made around the time court necklace beads were still in use, and suspect it's is - at earliest - a product of the state filigree workshop in Beijing that was nearly closed not too long ago during the wave of c2000 bankruptcies of state-owned enterprises.
Any guesses? 1920s? 1970s? Last month?
