This exquisite vinaigrette is extraordinarily rare and in all original excellent condition. It is shaped as a puffy heart and measures 2 3/4” x 2 3/4” x 1” and weighs 3.7 oz. / 105 grams. It dates to the early 19th century. The exquisite Viennese enamel scenes depict leisurely outings of members of the aristocracy. The lid features beautifully detailed cupids, and a clock tower. The condition of this portion is excellent with only a few superficial surface scratch marks (please refer to the photos). The top portrays three youthful couples enjoying a leisurely day in the countryside. No wear is present. The base depicts a countryside scene where a boy offers flowers to a pretty girl & a gentleman in the background carries a butterfly net. The single imperfection is wear confined to the side of the boy’s face. The sterling fittings have an impressed pattern & have aged well showing a rich patina. The clasp works well. The grille is heavily gilded, without wear except for a few spots on the interior's edges. The interior rim is stamped with hallmarks that are very difficult to see.
