This is brilliant - and wonderful for a very special doll.  I have owned only two of these handbag shaped Vinaigrettes in the very many years I have been interested in dolls.   A Vinaigrette was designed to hold a little sponge onto which a perfume was placed.  The owner could open the little case to release the sweet perfume.  It is solid silver, beautifully made and hallmarked in Birmingham for the year of  1880.   The hallmark of course includes Queen Victorias head. The fine silversmiths were Hilliard and Thompson.  The little vinaigrette is hinged at the base and the grill inside is also hinged.  All of the three pieces of silver which make up the handbag vinaigrette are marked with the same date letter, which confirms that the three parts were original to the item.  It is in super condition.

 It is perfect to display in a Doll`s trunk - on a display table or for a very special doll to hold.  It will in fact suit several size Dolls.  As a guide I have photographed it with an 11 inch Parisienne Fashion Doll and a 5 inch it will fit a host of sizes in between also and a 12" doll as well.   I think your smaller dolls will be arguing as to who will get this item to hold!

It is of course a considered purchase, but one which will delight the owner.  I can offer layway - so do ask if you would prefer to buy this way.
