Vintage Sterling Silver Cruet Set by Asprey. This beautiful cruet set comprises a mustard pot, salt cellar, pepper pot and two spoons which. Are made from sterling silver. They are of the exceptional quality to be expected of the maker, Asprey & Co. And each piece is decorated with an applied Celtic band and stands on a splayed circular foot.
The lids of the mustard and pepper pots are domed and stepped with finials to the tops. The mustard pot and salt cellar come with their original blue glass liners and the interior of the pepper pot is gilded. I have matched a salt and mustard spoon to the set. Each piece of the cruet is hallmarked for Birmingham 1936 with the makers mark of Asprey & Co. The mustard spoon is dated for Sheffield 1947 by W&JAB and the salt spoon for Birmingham 1948 by JS.
The cruet set is in lovely condition with the only things to mention being a pinhead dint to the body of the pepper pot and one to the body of the mustard pot. The hinge of the mustard pot is sound and the lid closes nice and flush, and the lid of the pepper pot fits nice and securely.The blue glass liners have no damage and the spoons are in good order with no dents, kinks or wear.
