ANTIQUE SILVER VINAIGRETTES

The silver vinaigrette has been admired and collected since first created, around 1770, being worn by both men and women since as pendents or on chains at the waist. The vinaigrette is an adaptation of the pouncet box, favoured by King Henry VIII, but smaller in size due to the strength of the aromatic vinegars being produced in the 18th Century. These vinegar based scents would soak the sponge contained within the vinaigrette, which could be opened and held to the nose to ward off unpleasant smells encountered in the streets, or for the inhalation of restorative vapours.
