This fine antique Victorian sterling silver egg cruet set consists of eight egg cups and eight associated spoons, displayed on a functional, purpose-made stand with a central carrying handle.

The original hallmarked egg cups have a plain inverted bell-shaped form onto a plain circular spreading foot

The egg cups are ornamented with applied moulded rims, and retain their original gilt interiors.

The eight supporting egg spoons have shield-shaped bowls.

The anterior face of each spoon handle is embellished with a bright cut engraved crest depicting out of a human heart a dexter arm erect holding a dagger in pale.

The reverse of each spoon is plain, apart from the featured hallmarks and has a rounded heel to the bowl.

These fine examples of Victorian silverware are supported and displayed on the original circular stand encircled with a plain moulded border to the rim.

The surface of the stand is fitted with eight original hallmarked egg cup securing pegs.

The surface is ornamented with a contemporary bright cut engraved crest, identical to the aforementioned heraldry, with an addition belted clansman's badge border bearing the family motto 'Fides Probata Coronat' - Approved Faith Crowns

The stand retains the original detachable cylindrical carrying handle with a large ring style terminal; securing to the underside of the stand with a wing nut.

The fine chased decorated base of the handle has a lobed, petal style form which acts as an integrated receiver for the eight egg spoons.

This Victorian egg cruet set is a very good gauge of silver, fine quality and in exceptional, presentation condition.

The chased decoration is very sharp and the bright cut engraved crests crisp.

Full hallmarks struck to the underside of the stand and to the reverse of each spoon are all very clear.

The part hallmarks to the surface of each egg cup, the securing pegs and the handle are also very clear.

Reflections in photographs may detract from the true representation of this very fine example of Victorian silverware.
