Description

DATE: Early Victorian, c.1850

A wonderful mid 19th Century period vinaigrette pendant made in France, circa 1850. The face features a beautiful enamelled cupid, with further enamelling and hand-chased detail to the sides. It opens to reveal an intricately worked grille that opens, allowing perfume-soaked piece of fabric or sponge to be kept inside. A particularly fine example of the style.
