Beautiful, collectible, and unique: this Victorian vinaigrette would be a lovely addition to an antique jewelry collection or a fashion forward pendant. The top, bottom, and sides of the piece are all covered in beautiful Victorian scenes, painted in enamel on gilt silver. The enamel work is in top condition. Each painting is a peaceful garden scene. Vinaigrettes were made in the Victorian period to hold sweet smelling perfumes. Women would hold them to their noses to block out the smell of the streets. The piece includes a bail so it can be worn as a pendant.
