Small ornamental boxes usually made in sterling silver, vinaigrettes were quite useful. Inside one contained a little sponge soaked in vinegar and aromatic salts or lavender water. We all know that lavender is an essential oil used to improve one’s mood and most effective in calming the nerves.
Over the sponge was a pierced grille holding it tightly into place. The grille had a variety of intricate patterns such as flowers or foliage and secured by a hinge. When the lid of the box was opened, the scent would escape through the perforations.
Some of the earliest known examples date from the fifteenth century. But the vinaigrette didn’t become popular until in the mid-eighteenth century, and all the rage by the nineteenth. Though some made from gold or porcelain, most were made from sterling silver with a gold gilt washed interior preventing the acids in the aromatics from discoloring the silver.
It was used by the ladies to ward off a fainting spell, or more often when any person with a bad smell approached. And let us not forget the horses relieving themselves in the streets. The user held it to her nose and would give a light *sniff*.
The vinaigrette evolved from a solely functional object to one which became a fashion statement. Women carried them in their pockets or in a small handbag. They and also attached them to chains around their necks, dangled them from bracelets, or hooked them to chatelaines worn on their waist.
At first, they were made in a just a few forms -- circular shapes, oval, polygonal, sometimes in the shape of a heart or a shell. But as time went on and the vinaigrette became a fashionable accessory, these designs were to impress. They were used regularly and on view in various social situations. More impressive designs were desired. It was at this time that vinaigrettes took whimsical forms such as a shoe, or a book, bells, beehives, helmets, little hand-bags, nuts, horns, flowers, barrels... Some even included engraved scenes of notable landmarks.

Cellarettes existed in the late seventeenth century, sometimes made from marble or a solid metal, but it wasn't until the end of following century and into the first quarter of the next that they reached their heyday. The most common form is a hexagonal or oval body made from mahogany and often banded together with two or three brass bands.
Above is a George III figured mahogany cellarette. The lid opens to reveal a lead-lined divided interior. This failed to sell at Sotheby's in October 2007. Perhaps I'm reading into it too much, but I love the radiating heart-shaped form in the veneer. It is as if the little cellarette is saying 'I love wine'.
This example is the most common form. This British version is hexagonal in shape and banded in brass with carrying handles. Made from mahogany which was a popular wood used during the Regency period. It sits on three molded legs. Sold at Brunk Auctions this month.
Most cellarettes were predominantly mahogany, but other woods such as satinwood, rosewood or padouk were used.
An English mahogany sarcophagus form cellarette. With a renewed verve for all things Roman, the sarcophagus shape was very trendy during the first quarter of the nineteenth century. The rectangular top has canted corners over a conforming case with lead lining and supported by carved paw feet. Northeast Auctions, Ronald Bourgeault Auctioneer in May 2008.
However, they remained popular in the American South even as late as the end of the nineteenth century. Drinking a little vino or spirit was seen as a healthy way to escape the dripping summer heat.
In January of this year it had an estimated value between $15,000 to $30,000. It fetched over $97,000. My my, an important cellarette indeed.

The origin of the "cocktail" is fragmented. Allegedly it emerged from a variety of folklores. One story claims it was named after the Mexican Princess "Cocktel" another says it was after the Aztec goddess "Xochitl". Regardless, special alcohol concoctions were said to have been swigged by both. Other tales include a custom of putting a feather, specifically a cock's tail, into a drink to warn the teetotalers not to take a sip. But that sounds rather messy and unappealing. Another claims it was named after the act of docking a horse's tail to signify the horse was not a thoroughbred. Somehow the idea of "mixed breed" of a horse was adapted to the mixing of alcohol with other ingredients. Honestly, I don't like associating sipping a toddy with a horse's derrière.
After Prohibition, the "bright young set" were fans of the cocktail cabinet. It meant emancipation and freedom to drink, smoke and drive cars fast. But to the older generation, it was offensive to values of class and taste. Middle class home manuals warned against the vulgar display of liquor in the home. It was too much like a public bar. No self-respecting home would present itself like a private bar welcoming unsavory types.
During the interwar years, the cocktail party was popular and quite a stylish shindy to throw instead of a dinner party. Buffet style – one could serve themselves with much more time to drink. The cocktail cabinet became a symbol of modernity.
The cabinet took on a variety of forms from a two-tier arrangement of a cabinet over cupboard to a simple cabinet resting on a stand. Doors would open to reveal a fully fitted array of cocktail shakers, stemmed glasses, cherry picks and lemon squeezers. Sometimes discretely built into a wall or rolled out on a trolley to wheel about.
Lately, the cocktail cabinet has been reintroduced, mainly in smaller versions or a tray placed on a sideboard or chest to hold bottles and decanters. Even if people don't stock it full of their favorite spirit, it nevertheless alludes to bygone day.
Although English, TFTM in Los Angeles has this cocktail cabinet also from the 1930's. Satinwood and walnut. The center doors lock for those unruly teenagers at home. The doors open to reveal a mirrored back and glass shelves. There is also a pullout mirrored shelf in the middle for convenient mixing of your favorite potion.
