A fabulous and very unusual cut crystal and silver plated table cruet by the top notch silversmith, Mappin & Webb.
The frame is beautifully decorated with Mistletoe mounts and the underside engraved " Ye Mistletoe Bough ". The piece is lucky enough to have an English design registration number, 71553, for the year 1887, so a lovely true Victorian example.
The cut crystal is just beautiful, very tactile, lovely quality and in undamaged condition. One large dish fills half of the frame which would be for butter, the other half comprises an open salt with spoon, a pepper pot, a mustard pot and a bottle for olive oil.
A really unusual piece in excellent condition having a diameter measuring 6 1/4" and standing 6" tall to top of handle.
