RARE AND FABULOUS DOLLS MOTHER OF PEAR VINAIGRETTE

 

  I have seen lots of Vinagrettes during the many years I have been collecting and selling - mostly silver examples and some of those more interesting than others, however, I have never seen one like this before! Just fabulous.  It is tiny, measuring just .75 of an inch (about 2cm) in diameter and about 1.25 inches from the bottom of the vinagrette to the top of the jump ring.    and has a gilt frame and inner vinaigrette cover - but the back and front are intricately carved from mother of pearl. 

 

 

 

 

   

I could see the care taken in the carving of the mother of pearl - the rear is as good as the front.  Also I thought the moulded detail to the gilding where the jump ring fits is such a pretty added detail.  The front opens and the grill can be seen.  The grill can then be opened and inside it was intended a piece of sponge would be added with perfume.  It is in really good order throughout.  It displays perfectly with a Parisienne Fashion Doll - but would look equally good with a Bebe.
