Antique George IV Sterling Silver 'Purse' Vinaigrette

About

A fine and impressive antique George IV English sterling silver vinaigrette in the form of a purse; an addition to our silver boxes collection. This antique George IV sterling silver vinaigrette has been realistically modeled in the form of a purse. The surface of the box features an applied panel replicating the flap and strap of the purse, embellished with bright cut engraved and pin struck decoration depicting stylized leaf designs accented with a central floral motif. The anterior surface of the vinaigrette is further ornamented with a bright cut engraved trellis pattern. The subdued domed underside of the box is embellished with an impressive bright cut engraved elliptical floral motif on a starburst background encompassed with an undulating wrigglework border. The strap decoration to the subtly domed hinged cover forms a plain thumbpiece and allows access to the hinged pierced decorated gilt grille. The interior of the vinaigrette and grille retains the original gilding. Dimensions: Length 2.3cm / 0.9". Width 1.8cm / 0.7". Height 0.8cm / 0.3". Weight: 0.2 troy ounce/7.6g. Maker: John Lawrence & Co. Origin: Birmingham, England. Date: 1826. Video: A video of this fine piece is available upon request. Reflections in photographs may detract from the true representation of this piece of antique silverware.
