ANTIQUE STERLING SILVER GUILLOCHE ENAMEL EGG VINAIGRETTE W/ORIGINAL ENAMEL CHAIN
- Source: eBay
Up for bids is a Sterling Silver egg shaped vinaigrette which is covered in guilloche enamel with a floral pattern. The two halves of the egg unscrew to accept the scented cotton that would be kept inside . I have left the remains of the cotton that was inside when I bought this. The cross piece inside the egg is marked STERLING, but I didn't see a maker's mark. Unfortunately there are 2 chips to the enamel on the egg, the worst chip is in the 3rd photo and the other is in the last picture. This comes with the original chain which has 4 sections of matching enameled pieces on it. The chain is all there, but one end is detached where it meets the egg. The chain is 19" long and the egg is about 3/4" long and 1/2" across. This was probably made between 1900 and 1920. Please look at the photos and message me with any questions. Please note, if this sells out of the US I will only ship via Priority and fully insured with the sale price declared for customs. Thanks for viewing and please bid!!
