Rawlings and Summers are universally recognised as the makers of the finest of the Book Vinaigrettes during this period. This example is of a large size and the spine is engraved with unusual Rococo raying shells and flower heads. The cover is hand engraved with crisp pluming scrolls, in addition to exotic birds and butterflies in flight. The base is also engraved with pluming scrolls, shell details and trellis work. The interior is finely gilded and displays an excellent grille pierced and engraved with pluming scrolls and flower heads, all surrounded by a bright cut frame. This box is of the finest quality and weight and is in excellent condition. Another Book vinaigrette from these workshops is shown in Silver Boxes, by Eric Delieb, page 106.
