Chatelaine Sterling Silver Vinaigrette Scent Holder W. B. Kerr 1800s Putti For Sale

Chatelaine Sterling Silver Vinaigrette Scent Holder W. B. Kerr 1800s Putti

CHATELAINE STERLING Silver VINAIGRETTE SCENT HOLDER W. B. Kerr 1800s PUTTI Antique

Beautiful Sterling silver scent or perfume holder with holes in the lid, meant to be hung on a chatelaine. Women would put the vinaigrette to their noses to mask the odors from unsanitary streets.

This one has the faces of cupids or putto, one on each side.

Here is info from

“William B. Kerr Co. was a manufacturer of jewelry, flatware and hollow-ware. Established in Newark, New Jersey in 1855. They are listed in the 1915 Edition of the Trademarks of the Jewelry and Kindred Trades as having been located at 144 Orange St. in Newark, NJ.

Kerr's hallmark was a fasces - a single-bit axe with rods bound with straps. They used this trademark of a medieval axe from 1855 until 1892.”

And from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Putto

“The iconography of putti is deliberately unfixed, so that it is difficult to tell the difference between putti, cupids, and various forms of angels. They have no unique, immediately identifiable attributes, so that putti may have many meanings and roles in the context of art.

Some of the more common associations are:

  • Associations with Aphrodite, and so with romantic – or erotic – love
  • Associations with Heaven
  • Associations with peace, prosperity, mirth, and leisure”

Length: 4”

The scent holder is marked Sterling. The chain is not.

Condition: Excellent! A beautiful, old piece!
