All pieces marked London 1792. Sterling silver.

Maker Robert Hennell.

Literature. The earliest antique silver cruet frames, containing 3 castors and 2 glass bottles, were made from c.1700 onwards. 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.

Condition

The condiment set is in very good condition. The bottles are all matching. Each piece is stamped with English silver hallmarks for 1792 and Robert Hennell. Please note that the two spoons are not original, they are both antique and hallmarked silver. The bottles are all matching with some slight wear and a little frosting; one oil and vinegar bottle is a little shorter than the other; the 2 silver castor tops have matching marks but the pattern is slightly different. Please note that this item is not new and will show moderate signs of wear commensurate with age. Reflections in the photograph may detract from the true representation of this item.
