Victorian Era Vinaigrette for smelling salts made of ammonia to keep a lady from fainting. Purses / handbags were small in this whimsical era and so were the accessories that would accompany and woman, or man. For the pocket or purse, to smell to keep the foul odors and heat at bay. Fainting was common for woman and to have this small accessory was really a necessary. It is small at only 1 5/8 inches long and 1/2 inch wide. The silver top is molded and tests 800, but I do not find a mark. There seems to be a small piece of fabric in the neck. Sometimes pieces of fabric soaked in ammonia would be place in the scent bottles or the salts. The glass is dark emerald green and clear. In perfect condition. These are rare and hard to find.
