Superb GEORGIAN Solid Silver VINAIGRETTE Hallmark 1813 Sterling Linwood NR

Birmingham: Matthew Linwood - STUNNING GRILLE - Quality

This is a very attractive GEORGIAN solid sterling silver vinaigrette which was made in Birmingham, England in 1813 by the famous Midlands silversmith, Matthew Linwood. It is a small size - measuring 1 1/8" wide, 7/8" deep and stands over 3/8" tall. It is a very high quality piece and quite substantial - it weighs17.4 grams -well over 1/2 troy oz. It has a very elegant design with canted edges with stunning decoration to the lid and base and is engraved Souvenir- it is internally fully gilded. The grille is pierced and engraved in a very detailed pattern in relief.

The vinaigrette was used, primarily by ladies, in the late 18th and 19th centuries. They consist of a compartment which contained a sponge soaked in aromatic acid - a form of vinegar and hence the name. The sponge was retained by a grille. When the vinaigrette was opened the aroma was said to greatly refresh and revive their owner. The aroma generated from the vinaigrette counteracted that from both the bodies and the environment

This vinaigrette is in very good condition after200 years - it has the usual light surface scratching with almost NO tiny dings but NO dents and NO repairs - SUPERB. The hinge works well with NO spring and the grille fits very well. It is hallmarked to the lidwith George III, ML,lion passant (sterling silver assay mark) and to the base with anchor,ML, pshowing that it was hallmarked in Birmingham in 1813. I have shown the main hallmarks so that you can make up your own mind. Postage will be 4.50GBP both within the UK and to international destinations. A really RARE GEORGIAN vinaigrette fromthe illustrious Matthew Linwood after200 years!!!!

Please note that the primary postage costs are for second class (or standard parcels service if the postage cost is over 6.00GBP) within the UK or surface mail to international destinations. First class post usually adds 50% to the quoted postage cost while airmail is typically double the cost of surface mail. If you want to know about the timescales and charges by Royal Mail then I suggest you look at http://www.royalmail.com. Please wait for my invoice with postage options that will be sent very soon after the sale finishes!

Low start and a sale because reserves spoil the fun.
