A George IV Sterling Silver Vinaigrette
A George IV sterling silver vinaigrette, realistically modelled in the form of a purse.

The anterior surface of the vinaigrette is further ornamented with a bright-cut engraved trellis pattern. Under the grille is a piece of sponge that was soaked in liquid to repel the bad smells.
