Silver Vinaigrettes

Used throughout the Georgian and Victorian eras by the upper classes, vinaigrettes are a product of a time which lacked hygiene and sanitation. They consisted of a hinged box which contained a sponge dipped in scented oil with a sweet aroma, and was used for smelling especially while travelling, as the streets and travelling companions would often smell. Steppes Hill Farm Antiques stocks a range of fine antique silver vinaigrettes for sale, with many sporting novelty designs or in particular those engraved or embossed with famous buildings or landmarks, known as “Castle Tops”. We would be glad to offer our expert advice on any of our antique collectibles, either online or in person.
