A good antique silver condiment set for pouring oil and vinegar. The heavy silver frame has a handsome rococo cartouche with monogram and stands on broad shell feet. The 2 early glass bottles have silver mounts with hinged lids. The silver decoration of all three pieces is fully matching and everything fits together. There is a small ring to the front, too small for a bottle, which probably is part of the original design.
Weight of stand 513 grams, 16.4 troy ounces.
Total height 23.5cm. Stand width 16cm. Bottle height 20cm.

Literature. The earliest antique silver cruet frames were made from c.1700 onwards. The two bottle oil and vinegar frame was also produced occasionally although these are more popular on the continent. Later in the 18th century the number of bottles in a cruet increased to as many as 8 or 10 containing a variety of sauces of the period such as soy, ketchup, tarragon etc, so many that little sauce labels were needed to identify the contents.
All pieces are in very good condition. The base is stamped underneath with a full set of English silver hallmarks. The silver bottle mounts are unmarked as is normal at that date.
