Favourite Item
This antique George IV sterling silver vinaigrette has been realistically modelled in the form of a purse.

The surface of the box features an applied panel replicating the flap and strap of the purse, embellished with bright cut engraved and pin struck decoration depicting stylised leaf designs accented with a central floral motif.

The anterior surface of the vinaigrette is further ornamented with a bright cut engraved trellis pattern.

The subdued domed underside of the box is embellished with an impressive bright cut engraved elliptical floral motif on a starburst background encompassed with an undulating wrigglework border.

The strap decoration to the subtly domed hinged cover forms a plain thumbpiece and allows access to the hinged pierced decorated gilt grille.

The interior of the vinaigrette and grille retains the original gilding.
