A quirky early 19th century silver and stone set Danish ‘Hovedvansaeg’ – a vinaigrette/spice box traditionally a betrothal gift. Urn shape with engraved foliate decoration on a raised foot which is also the hinged spice compartment (it is also said that this lower compartment was for keeping a coin to put in the church collection), set with three faceted glass stones with colourful hand-painted flower backing. Struck twice to the base with maker’s mark ‘MB’ and prick dot engraved with initials and the date 1819. Generous proportions, a terrific thing.

In fabulous antique condition, both lids working beautifully, the engraving crisp, the interior silver-gilt lovely. Finial stone has one small chip.
