Description


This very fine cast sterling silver five piece cruet set consists of two peppers, two salts and a mustard pot, all realistically modelled in the form of toads.


The pieces, although vintage, have been modelled in the Victorian style.


The large and impressive mustard pot has a hinged cover (the toad head), which when opened, reveals the blue glass liner and mustard spoon.


The hallmarked spoon has a gilt lined bowl.


The handle of the spoon, which protrudes from the toad's mouth when closed, has a forked terminal, representing the toad's tongue.


The smaller pepper pots and salt pots are pierced to the top of the head, between the eyes, and are fitted with push fit stoppers to the underside.


All five pieces are fitted with bead inset eyes.


The mustard pot is struck to the underside with full hallmarks, including the maker's mark for Harman & Lambert.


The salt and pepper pots have full hallmarks struck to the surface - all were made by Richard Comyns.


Date: 1967

Condition


The pieces of this impressive vintage cruet set are an exceptional gauge of silver, fine quality and in excellent condition.

The pieces have been professionally polished and are in presentation condition.

The casting is very sharp.

Full hallmarks struck to the surface of the salt and pepper pots are all very clear.

Full hallmarks struck to the underside of the mustard pot are slightly rubbed, but legible.


Reflections in photography may detract from the true representation of these items.
