Favourite Item
The upper plateau of the cover is ornamented with a rare scene depicting Windsor Castle* in relief, all on a matte background.

The sides of the box and cover are encompassed with a continuous band of leaf ornamentation.

The underside of this English silver vinaigrette is ornamented with chased scrolling leaf decoration incorporating a central 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 floral and leaf decorated silver gilt grille and original gilded interior.

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

* The residence of the British Royal family at Windsor, distinguishable by its Victorian architecture.
