Vinaigrettes,
popular from the late 18th Century and through the mid 19th Century, were  small silver containers with a hinged lid, which opens to reveal a pierced grill, also hinged, and underneath the grill would be a tiny sponge holding various aromatic substances, usually dissolved in vinegar.

Used both by men and women they were generally carried whilst travelling, to give a pleasant aroma as the streets or travelling companions could often smell.

The inside of the silver boxes was gilded to prevent corrosion by the vinegar.
