Antique Victorian vinaigrette featuring carved mother of pearls set into a gold tone metal. This piece would have originally hung from a chatelaine, a popular decorative belt hook with chains, each chain would hold useful household items such as purse, watch, keys, vinaigrette and seals. Chatelaines were popular between 1860 to the end of the 19th century.

 

A vinaigrette is a small container with a perforated top, used to contain an aromatic substance such as vinegar or smelling salts, especially popular for women in the Victorian era to combat the aroma from the waste products common in cities. Unfortunately the perforated top which would have sat inside the piece is longer there, however the piece would be a fantastic locket and pendant as it is very beautiful.

FAQ

Quality

Antique and vintage jewellery normally show signs of age. At MAYVEDA we aim to sell items that are in excellent vintage condition. Exceptions are sometimes made if the piece is particularly unique or rare. All items are described in great detail indicating any flaws in the piece. Any items that do not meet the expectation of the customer can be returned within 30 days, with a full money back guarantee.

Accuracy

MAYVEDA seeks to provide accurate dates for each item through knowledge, understanding and research. Unmarked items are very difficult to date and therefore such dates must be regarded as estimates, though we strive to be as accurate as we can. The dates on all marked items should be accurate if carrying hallmarks and makers marks.

Warrenty

At Mayveda we offer a six month warranty which is not due to wear and tear and/or negligence after purchase. Antique and vintage jewellery require special care. Select the piece which is appropriate for your lifestyle. Contact us for advice if you are unsure. Many antique pieces of jewellery are not appropriate for daily wear.
