Excellent Scandinavian Solid Silver Vinaigrette, early 1800s. These vinaigretes are called Hovedvandsaeg in Scandinavia. The little boxes were given by young men as a love token declaring their intentions of marriage. Engraved with the year of the wedding: 1835, and the monograms of the bridal couple on the base rim. This box is unmarked, they quite often are. Probably made in south of Denmark, close to the German border.
