Condition


This antique Nathaniel Mills vinaigrette is a superior gauge of silver, exceptional quality and in exceptional presentation condition.

The decoration is very sharp and very crisp.

The original gilding is in exceptional condition, in keeping with age.

There is some discouloration to the interior of the grille, in keeping with age.

Full hallmarks struck to the interior are all very clear; the nature of this piece dictates the location of the part hallmarks to the underside of the grille, resulting in the maker's mark and lion passant being partially visible.


Reflections in photographs may detract from this fine example of antique silverware.
