This vinaigrette from the 1860s makes a wonderful pendant today. The small rectangular vinaigrette was once used to carry around a pleasing personal scent, as a pick-me-up, or to cover unwanted smells. This locket pendant has undulating scalloped edges with a floral acanthus decoration. Pierced scrolling foliate decorate the grille of the vinaigrette, and this opens up, revealing the space where once a sponge was kept. Today once can replace the sponge with lavender, spices, herb or the small item of your choice. The grille has a gold wash along with the interior, which is luminous and catches the eye. On the inside too we find the Birmingham marks, and the date letter, as well as the sterling silver mark. The piece has a maker's mark for Aston & Son. This vinaigrette is monogrammed with a highly ornate front and back. The pendant measures approximately 3/4 of an inch by 1/2 of an inch and when closed it is 1/4 of an inch deep. This rectangular vinaigrette is a curious antique, a great conversation starter and unique item, but it also makes a wonderful decorative pendant or locket. It is ready to hang on a chain of your choice. We have many chains available through Kirsten's Corner should you need one.
The vinaigrette weighs 6.9 grams. It is a suitable unisex item, in great condition for its age.
