This exceptional antique silver vinaigrette has a rectangular form with rounded corners.

The cover of this fine vinaigrette is embellished with a scene of Abbotsford House* in high relief.

The sides of the box are encompassed with bands of chased scrolling leaf ornamenation.

The underside of the box is ornamented with engine turned decoration incorporating a plain rectangular vacant cartouche.

Both the base and cover are embellished with applied scrolling leaf decorated borders.

The hinged silver vinaigrette cover allows access to the original hallmarked hinged, pierced decorated silver gilt grille.

The vinaigrette retains the original gilding; this has worn with age in a sympathetic fashion to an aesthetically pleasing mellow colour.

This execeptional vinaigrette was crafted by the renowned silversmith Nathaniel Mills.

* A historical country house which was the former residence of renowned novelist and poet Sir Walter Scott, situated in the Scottish Borders.
