click for more pictures for item
This is a beautiful turn of the century condiment holder. ( Victorian Cruet Caddy/ Castor Condiment Holder -- Vintage) It originally contained 5 condiment inserts but unfortunately they have been lost over the years. This is the holder only. This is quadruple silver plate. However, someone down through the years has painted it a light soft green. It is still gorgeous and quite ornate.
It is marked on the very bottom. It has the number 325 on the bottom of the holder. It also says "Rockford Silver Plate Co." and it has a set of balance scales on the bottom by the name.
Rockford Silverplate Co was in business from 1882 to around 1925 when the Rockford plant was purchased by Raymond Sheets and it was renamed .
We bought this at an estate sale. It measures 18 " tall by about 7 1/2" across. Insert diameters are about 1 7/8". This is a charming holder and it will look great in your beautiful dinning room. A nice quality piece that would look lovely with any type of fancy table "set for a king". Thanks for looking at Lemon Tree Treasures.
