Ornate Antique Victorian Meridan Quadruple Plated Silver Cruet Set Circa 1880's :
From my personal collection of 35 +++ years of collecting antiques, this is a 6 etched crystal bottle cruet quadruple plated silver castor set made by the Meriden Silver Plate Co. in Connecticut, U.S.A. Circa 1880's. This is one of the most beautifully ornately etched set I have ever seen with large birds, flowers and butterflies. It sits on 4 individual feet with a butterfly and other designs ornately supporting the large stand. The diameter of the large stand measures approx. 25 1/2" around. This is a lazy-susan stand which moves freely and stands approx. 17 1/4" high. Measurement across is approx. 8 1/2". The bottom is signed and numbered 3027 with a Lion in the circle (see photo 8). It has 6 etched crystal bottles. The mustard pot is the only one that is chipped (see photo # 10).It still has it's silver top, but missing the spoon (I'm assuming there was one at one time). The 2 glass stoppers (see photo 9 are NOT chipped, but they each have a small bubble on the glass stopper.) There are no chips around the rims, etc. These two glass bottles are different (as you can see in the photos), however, EACH one matches one or more of the other bottles which have the silver lids. So, I'm no expert, but I would say these all belong together. Photos 11 and 12, show all the bottles together. So, if you are an expert in this area, you can make the decision for yourself. (I do not claim to be an expert.) Please let me know if you have any questions, I will be more than happy to answer. Also, my pictures are part of my summary and show better than I can describe fully, so make sure you see them all. PLEASE TAKE A PEEK AT MY OTHER ITEMS LISTED.
