This exceptional antique Chinese silver vinaigrette has been realistically modelled in the form of a purse.
The surface of this silver vinaigrette is embellished with chased decoration depicting simplified Oriental figures on a matte background.
This impressive box retains the original round link chain, securing to ring loop attachments to either side of the body.
The case is fitted with a hinged hallmarked cover, embellished with a flat engraved stemmed chrysanthemum design, on a matte background.
The cover opens to allow access to the hinged pierced scrolling leaf decorated grille.
