Vinaigrette in Silver - Georgian

These exquisite creations were for holding smelling salts or a similar astringent concoction to ward away the obnoxious odours from the Georgian streets. Silversmiths cottoned on to the idea and introduced a variety of luxurious versions. This one is by Thomas Shaw, is in silver with silver gilt internal "furniture" and was hallmarked in Birmingham in 1824. It measures just 1" by 3/4" and is 3/8" deep. Its oblong cartouche bears the engraving "S England". Condition excellent. Worldwide insured air shipping included in list price. Nothing extra to pay.
