The Vinaigrette is finely modelled as a Maltese Cross and both the cover and base are beautifully engraved with sunburst designs around a central stylised flower head. This example has a suspensory ring and the interior grille is pierced and engraved with flower heads and pluming scrolls. The Vinaigrette is in excellent condition and is very well marked. This is a very rare design and a similar example is shown in "Investing in Silver" by Eric Delieb, page 112.
