Victorian Pewter Vinaigrette Choker/Necklace


Vinaigrette Choker Necklace            Circa. 1890-1900             United Kingdom

Hand-chased Victorian vinaigrette with screw top.   Hangs off a 32-inch long black cord with a sterling silver shepherd's hook.  The hook acid-tested for sterling.    

When the streets smelled poorly, the ladies put cotton, infused with perfume into the help mask the odors.   Hence, the tiny holes in the screw top.   

The vinaigrette measures 1 1/2 inches in height  with a 2 inch diameter.   

Weight is 1.2 ounces

In excellent original condition
