Boxes and Vertu
Pink and Apple Green Enamel and Gold Antique Vinaigrette
The frail ladies of the 19th century could swoon delicately into the arms of their swains and be revived with the diminutive box with vinegar-infused sponge at their throat or wrist. May this Swiss gold and enamel vinaigrette spark a flirtation in your life. The apple green and pink flask-form pendant features an en plein enamel floral bouquet, and is further decorated with birds and ribbons.
Swiss, circa 1830
