An exceptionally fine George III Oil & Vinegar Cruet made in London in 1784 by Wakelin & Taylor.


This beautiful Neo-Classical Cruet stand is Boat shaped in form and stands on four cast bud feet which are attached to the main body with acanthus leaf mouldings. The sides rise to a beaded rim and this piece has two side loop handles. The Classically inspired bottle cages unscrew and can be removed for cleaning. They have a beaded rim and three column supports. The facetted cut glass oil and vinegar bottles have plain mounts, loop handles and the hinged covers terminate in a ball finial. Both the mounts of the bottles and the base of the stand are engraved with a contemporary double Crest. The Cruet is in excellent condition and is of the finest quality. It is fully marked on the base and with the makers mark and sterling mark on the underside of the cages. The firm evolved from the workshops of Parker & Wakelin and enjoyed Royal patronage, due to the quality of their output. An exceptional piece.
