An extremely rare George IV Vinaigrette made in London in 1828 by Edward Edwards.


This very fine example is silver gilt and broad rectangular in form, with cut corners. The sides are decorated with reeding and the front displays a cast floral thumb piece. Unusually, both the cover and the base are inset with a blood stone agate panel, held in place with scalloped mounts. The interior displays a most beautiful and very rare grille, pierced and engraved with an open book and crossed quills, all surrounded by foliate sprays and flower heads. It is most unusual to find a vinaigrette with a stone top and base. The way that the stone is inset is also most unusual, as it is reminiscent of the Charles II Squeezie Boxes. This piece is very well marked and is in excellent condition.
