Description:

George III Sterling Silver Cruet Set, casters and stand marked London, 1773-74, "TD" probably for Thomas Daniel, silver mounts on glass cruets indistinct, all with laurel swags and neoclassical motifs throughout, glass cruets and stand with engraved monogram, stand ht. 11 3/4 in., approx. 62.1 troy oz. total weighable silver.
Estimate $600-800

Casters (and lids) and stand all marked consistently as noted, rubbed marks to silver mounts on the cruet bottle are indistinct, but appear to be another maker (see images); though appear to be period, matching, and with same engraved monogram as stand. Each piece also bears French import marks. One joint between leg and stand re-soldered (very unobtrusive). One glass cruet with chipped loss to underside, each slightly cloudy at very bottom edge. Otherwise in good overall condition.
