This is a large Cased Solid Silver 6 Piece Cruet Set & 4 Spoons. It comprises of 2 salts, 2 mustard pots, 2 pepper, 2 mustard spoons and 2 salt spoons. The salts and mustards are of a convex slightly tapering circular shape having a raised lined pattern around the top and base rims. The mustard pots have hinged lids with a slightly domed lid which has a raised circle shape in the middle and a stepped lined pattern around the base of the lid. They have a pierced thumbnail and what I can best describe as a sort of triangular shape handle. All the salts and mustards have a blue glass liners. The peppers are of a tapering cylindrical shape with a raised line pattern around the top rim, the base of the pull off lids and the short circular spreading bases. The lids also have the same circle shape in the centre of the domed lids which match the mustard pots. The 4 spoons have paddle shaped terminals. This lovely solid silver cruet is made of silver and each piece has clear hallmarks. This super set comes complete in its original black box with cut outs in the velour base for each piece to sit securely. Date: 1936/37, the 4 spoons 1937/38. Makers Marks: R & D (Roberts & Dore). Dimensions: Peppers are just over 3 inches tall, 1.25 inches in diameter at their widest point with the pedestal bases just under 1.25 inches in diameter. Salts 1.5 inches tall, the tops are 1.75 inches in diameter and the bases are just over 1.75 inches in diameter. Mustards are the same sizes as the salts but measure 2.5 inches wide including the handles and 2 inches tall. Mustard spoons just over 2.75 inches long in total, the bowls just under 1 inch long and just over 0.5 inches wide at their widest point. Salt spoons just over 2.5 inches long in total, the bowls just over 0.5 inch diameter. The total weight of silver is 189g (excluding the glass liners). The total weight including the case is 1022g. Condition: The whole set is in very good condition apart from one of the salts has a very shallow impression around the bulbous base and one of the peppers having a shallow crease in the body (see photograph) and the other pepper also has a smaller slight crease at the bulbous base. Having said all of this this is only minor, but I do try to list my items as accurately as possible. All the glass liners are in very good condition with no chips or cracks. The box too is in very good condition inside and out. Remarks: This really is a very good solid silver good sized 6 piece cruet complete with all its spoons that would look impressive on any dinner table, with a 3 piece set at each end. If you did not want to keep it for yourself then it would make a lovely Engagement, Wedding or Silver Wedding present. Antique and vintage silver by its very nature has been previously used. Silver is a comparatively soft metal and a combination of many years use invariably leaves its mark. I do endeavour to describe all items accurately but do not expect any antique to be in “as new condition”. RETIREMENT SALE – SHOP CLOSING.
