An exceptional, fine and impressive, antique Victorian English sterling silver egg cruet set for four persons, made by John Aldwinckle & Thomas Slater; part of our dining silverware collection

SKU A9515


This exceptional antique sterling silver condiment serving set consists of four egg cups displayed on a functional original purpose-made stand with a central carrying handle.

The original hallmarked egg cups have a bell shaped form onto a circular spreading foot.

These antique silver egg cups are plain and unembellished, with applied bead decoration to each foot and upper rim.

Each egg cup is supported and displayed on the circular stand, ornamented with further applied bead decoration to the rim.

The surface of the stand bears four hallmarked circular peg receivers enabling the egg cups to stand securely in situ.

The original antique stand features a central carrying handle encompassed with bead ornamentation, in addition to leaf designs to the upper and lower portion of the navette shaped handpiece.

The stand is supported by four impressive bracket style feet, encompassed with further bead decoration and a collared bead design to each terminal.

Maker: John Aldwinckle & Thomas Slater

Date: 1891

This antique egg cruet set is an exceptional gauge of silver, exceptional quality and in exceptional condition.

The applied decoration is all very sharp.

Full British hallmarks to the underside of the stand and part hallmarks to the egg cup receivers are all very clear; the hallmarks to each egg cup have wear in keeping with age and location.

Reflections in photographs may detract from the true representation of this silver egg cruet set.
