      I'm wondering if this was a scent bottle. Maybe some cloth with perfume was placed in it and carried in a pocket or purse. Cities kinda stunk back then because of poor sanitation. Or maybe a pill bottle? Heck, I'm just guessing though. Maybe someone else has a clue.

      scent bottle maybe,but the vinaigrette is what the previous writer is referring to,these were little square boxes with a grate inside,they used to soak a piece of cloth with perfume and hold it to their noses when confronted by nasty smells in the victorian era.

      Could this possibly be a tea caddy? I don't think that it's a perfume bottle, and it's not a vinaigrette. I should think that it held something dry. Nice mystery.
