This antique Georgian silver vinaigrette has been realistically modelled in the form of a purse.
The surface of the box is embellished with fine and impressive bright cut engraved and pin struck panels depicting stylised leaf designs accented with acorn motifs.
The strap decoration to the hinged silver vinaigrette cover forms a plain thumbpiece and allows access to the hinged pierced decorated gilt grille.
The interior of this Georgian silver vinaigrette and grille is gilded and retains the original sponge.
