1850 Ladies Vinaigrette Scent Perfume Accessory Miniature S917
A Victorian miniature ladies vinaigrette in book form with inner hinged grill for holding a little perfumed sponge.
This was a very useful accessory in Victorian times when venturing onto the streets of London where strong overpowering smells necessitated every lady to carry a vinaigrette. This is an unusually small one and very rare.
It measures 1 inch by 3/4 of an inch.
It is made from ormolu or gold gilt. The inner grill is marked souvenir which suggests it may have been acquired on the Grand Tour.
It is in pristine condition .
