Description : The tin stand has three legs covered with a pattern of intertwined dotted lines. The side surface of the stand has four rows of design, which, from the bottom up, are leaves, flowers in circles, grapevines, and flowers in circles. The inside of the stand is smooth, with a handle protruding from the centre held with a wing bolt. A six-pointed piece with curved grooves holds the bottles in place. The centre handle is decorated with leaf patterns and has a fluted neck. Leaf patterns introduce a ring at the top of the handle, used to pick up the cruet. The glass bottles are varied with fluted necks and etched patterns of leaves, circles, and lines. Four bottles have saddled openings and two have round openings. Two bottles have lids. One lid is crystal-shaped and the other has a round top. Lids for the other four bottles are missing.
Commentaires : Dining accessories, like cruets, were status symbols, and thus, were generally elaborately decorated. Cruets were also sometimes made of coloured glass, including rose, turquoise, and brown glass. Cruet sets in Europe were first used to hold ecclesiastical wine, oil, and water, but by the late seventeenth century, they were also used domestically. They were considered an essential part of a well-laid English table during the Victorian era, and English fashions often influenced those in Newfoundland. Circular casters, like this one, were introduced early in the nineteenth century. Circular casters that, like this one, rested on feet, held six bottles, and had an elaborate handle in the centre were particularly common in the United States of America during the second half of the nineteenth century.
Fonctions : This cruet was used to hold condiments, such as vinegar and oil, and it was placed on the table for easy access for family and guests.
