The quality of this piece is exceptional; the scent flask having a screw lid with integral carrying chain, the two boxes retain their original bright gilt interior. Weight 58 grams, 1.8 troy ounce. Height 5 cm. Width 5 cm. London 1870. Maker “JB”, probably John Brashier.

Object Condition

This charming silver combination vinaigrette is in very good condition with no damage or restoration. Very crisp finish. Stamped with clear English silver hallmarks to the vinaigrette box base, lid and base of the pill box and the scent bottle cap. The internal gilt is not worn. Everything is exactly as you would want to find it.
Please note that this item is not new and will show moderate signs of wear commensurate with age. Reflections in the photograph may detract from the true representation of this item.
