George IV Sterling Silver Vinaigrette by Thomas & William Simpson from 1822
Product Code: SMS7137
In vintage condition. The lid is no longer attached. It contains its original pad for perfume.
A vinaigrette is a small filigree container used to hold a perfume-soaked sponge or piece of cotton. Vinaigrette jewellery was worn by ladies during the Victorian era to mask unpleasant odours.
A lovely foliate pierced decorated panel opens up and items may be placed inside.
The lid is no longer attached to the main part and this is reflected in the price. It is still a lovely piece, it just needs repairing.
It has an empty cartouche. We can monogram it for you, £25 for one letter and £35 for two.
- Hallmarked: Made by Thomas & William Simpson in Birmingham in 1822.
