A SMALL COLLECTION OF ANTIQUE SILVER AND OBJECTS OF VERTU

silver vinaigrette - England


versione italiana
English silver vinaigrette the vinaigrette is a little silver box with an hinged cover and a second interior drilled cover apt to contain a sponge soaked of vinegar (vinaigre in French). Vinegar fragrances were sniffed by ladies in case of sligh illness.
This silver vinaigrette was made in Birmingham in 1817, silversmith mark JL, interior and floral grille are gold washed to prevent vinegar corrosion. The dedication on external cover is EH to MH.
The vinaigrette measures 1 1/2 in. (cm. 3,5) and was bought from an English dealer through the Internet.
This item is not for sale, but most of my pieces were bought through the Internet. On the bottom and on the right bar of this page there are some advertisings of websites of silver and antique dealers
