Fine Antique Silver & Objects of Vertu



VINAIGRETTES

Vinaigrette are usually small boxes with a hinged lid, which opens to reveal a pierced grill, also hinged, and underneath the grill would be a small sponge
soaked in an oily sweet smelling substance. Used both by men and women were generally carried whilst travelling, to give a pleasent aroma as the streets
or travelling companions could often smell. Inside all the surfaces would be gilded to protect the silver from staining.
