Old Hall Collection: Connaught Cruet Set

 
 

Bought from a fellow Old Hall collector, who had duplicate items. Originally these cruet sets did NOT have a tray to go with them. Whether mine is one of the early sets and never had a tray, or a later set whose tray has been lost, I have no idea. As far as I know there is no way to tell from the items. I don’t actually use this set normally because I have David Mellor salt and pepper grinders for table use, never add salt to my food anyway (though I am a pepper-holic!) and as I don’t eat meat I don’t use mustard. None-the-less, the set lives in the Old Hall cupboard with the other items and is seen, and often handled, daily.
