This is certainly an impressive 'hulier & vinaigrier': oil & vinegar cruet set. It is over one foot tall! Nearly 14" high, 9" wide and 4.75" deep, it towers over most anything else. The original decanters, sans stoppers, are quite ornate: partial fluted bottom, a center row of large "pearls" then partial swirling fluting topped off with cut tiers; and this is cut crystal, the edges are sharp! In great condition as well, maybe a nip here or there. The silver decoration is classical in design; palmettos, scrolling acanthus feet, floral and foliate motifs and of course the very tall handle topped with an arc of circular balls, cornucopia sides and so much more. There are some flaws in the old silver, nothing serious; but a small tear in a few places (see photos for an idea of what they are like).

The piece bears silver hallmarks in many places; these marks include the Vieillard or Michelange fineness guarantee 950 sterling and the Paris guarantee used from 1819-1838. As well we find the maker's mark on bottom, for Etienne-Auguste Courtois, active from 1834-1844. Hence this piece must date from 1834-1838.

please see photos for dimensions and marks.
