An almost identical vinaigrette by the same maker can be found at.

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 against the less than pleasant odors of others and the surroundings!
