Tartan Ware Smelling Salt Case, Vinaigrette
A very sweet tartan ware item for a lady to carry when leaving her home. The cylinder shaped box has the word, ‘Vinaigrette’ in the lid . The outside covering of this box was done is the M’Beth clan pattern.
Inside this two piece cylinder box there is a tiny glass bottle that may have had a cork to close off the spilling of the ‘smelling salt’. The container and small glass bottle are each in good condition. Measurements: 2 1/2 inches on the cylinder box and 1 15/16 inches in diameter. The small glass bottle 1 3/4 inches high and is 3/8 inches in diameter. This may not be the original bottle for this case.
This item of tartan ware would be a lovely addition to a collation or a gift to someone special. 19th Century
