This English cruet set has a silver holder and 7 cut glass bottles/pots. The holder has the silver hallmarks for HN, either for Henry Nutting of Hannah Northcote, Long and 1806.
The base of the holder is wood. The holder and the mustard pot have a family crest on the side of them. The holder is 10 ¼ inches high to the top of the handle, 8 inches wide and 5 inches deep.
The mustard pot is 5 ½ inches tall. The bottles vary in size from 5 1/8 inches tall to 6 ½ inches tall. The two shakers have silver tops and so does the mustard pot.
