This sterling silver, Dutch shoe vinaigrette was made in London during the 19th century by David Bridge at a time when most (almost 90 percent) silver vinaigrettes were made in Birmingham. It is 2.75” in length and 1.25” in height. The overall design depicts a fox and hound on one side and a swan and squirrel with a pile of fruit and vegetables on the other. The hinged lid opens to reveal a hinged, ornately pierced grill that flips up for the insertion of a perfumed sponge.
