Description


This exceptional antique Victorian sterling silver combination vinaigrette / pill box / scent bottle has an oval barrel shaped form.


The body of the vessel is embellished with applied plain broad girdles replicating the details of the bilge and quarter hoops, which provide anchor points for the original link chain.


The piece retains the original hallmarked screw fit cover to the scent bottle, conjoined to one of the aforementioned anchor points with a link chain.


One end of the vessel is fitted with a hallmarked hinged cover, which when opened reveals the vinaigrette with the original hinged grille and gilt interior.


The gilded grille is ornamented with a bright cut engraved and pierced decorated bordered scroll and leaf design.


The hallmarked hinged cover to the opposing end forms a pill box and opens to reveal the original gilt interior; this versatile box could be used for a multitude of functions.


The hinged covers to either end of the box are encircled with further applied plain broad borders to the upper portion.


This antique Victorian scent bottle / pill box / vinaigrette was crafted by the renowned London silversmiths Sampson Mordan II and bears the retailer's mark 'S Mordan & Co, London'.
