Antique English Victorian Silverplate Cruet Set with Glass Cruets

Antique English Victorian Silverplate Cruet Set Glass BottlesToday's featured item is an Antique English Victorian Silverplate Cruet Set with Glass Cruets

The silver plate cruet with a matching caster is one of the most fanciful pieces of dining table equipment made during the late 19th century. Bottles and casters used for salt and spices were made in America as early as the late 17th century. However, American silver cruets for these were uncommon before the 1850s, when table manners began to be sufficiently codified to encourage a proliferation of specialized utensils. Most 18th and early 19th century cruets were originally fitted with 2 to 10 English cut-glass bottles. Over the years, many of these cruets sets subsequently lost their bottles to breakage or loss.
