This exquisite cruet set is inspired by the elegance of 16th and 17th-century silver craftsmanship when cruet frames were cinquefoil, designed to support two bottles and three casters. This set pays homage to that tradition with its quatrefoil tray that beautifully accommodates four round items. The mustard pot is styled as a tankard, a reference to the iconic style of late 16th-century silver, and equipped with a spoon and blue glass liner. Completing the set is an egg cup and salt and pepper casters in a classic cylindrical form. Traditional acanthus leaf motifs provide intricate decoration along with delicate ribboning. Cruet sets became fashionable during the Victorian era when elaborate dining table settings became a symbol of social status and sophistication.

Crafted by George Fox, renowned for his expertise in antique styles—a term broadly applied throughout the 19th century—this set reflects masterful craftsmanship. Fox supplied his creations to prestigious retailers like Lambert & Rawlings, who catered to a discerning clientele. Fox was a master of Victorian design, renowned for his meticulous attention to detail and his ability to blend elegance with functionality. His work epitomizes the Victorian era's emphasis on ornate decoration and craftsmanship, characterized by intricate motifs, rich textures and a sense of grandeur.
