About this item

On offer is this truly lovely and scarce antique cruet item. It's in good condition overall, the silver plating shines up well still - there are signs of rubbing exposing the base nickel silver and notable production flaws to the spoon's bowl rim but as shown in the photos all adding to the aged charm and character of the piece.

It's in the novelty form of a Scottish thistle with a great amount of detailing all over. The hinged lid works fine still and the original glass liner is also present and in good order.

The original spoon is present and features a conforming thistle handle terminal.

Unmarked for a maker but certainly has age, circa late 19th / early 20th century and Sheffield or Birmingham produced.

It measures a charming 5.5cm (2 and 1/4 inches) in height (not including spoon) and is ready to be collected and enjoyed once again!
