A good antique silver condiment set for pouring oil and vinegar. The heavy silver frame has a handsome rococo cartouche with monogram and stands on broad shell feet. The 2 early glass bottles have silver mounts with hinged lids. The silver decoration of all three pieces is fully matching and everything fits together. There is a small ring to the front, too small for a bottle, which probably is part of the original design.
Weight of stand 513 grams, 16.4 troy ounces.
Total height 23.5cm. Stand width 16cm. Bottle height 20cm.
