Perfect for adding to any collection! This lovely sterling box is known as a "Vinaigrette", once containing cotton soaked in spirits of vinegar, smelling salts or perfume.
The inner pierced cover allowed a Victorian lady or gentleman to inhale invigorating or sweet scents while walking streets filled with foul odors. This also shows older distinct British sterling hallmarks. Measurements are taken flat and as carefully as possible, however they should always be considered approximate.
