Victorian MT WASHINGTON AMBERINA PAIRPOINT Cruet Condiment Silverplate Caddy
DON'T MISS THIS AND A NUMBER OF OTHER AUCTIONS COMING UP! GREAT PIECES OF GLASS RARELY SEEN! Thanks for all the inquiries and excellent questions... Keep watch ing and enjoying these works of art. Up today in our continuing offering from this excellent collection of beautiful vintage art glass is this rare Victorian era Mt Washington Pairpoint Amberina condiment set including an original Pairpoint quadruple silverplate caddy. The set features two stoppered cruets and matching salt & pepper shakers, five pieces in all. I believe this to be a somewhat scarce set to find all together. The amberina pieces have a smaller optic coin-dot pattern, the S & P's being matched, however the cruets appear not to match as well... One has a more pronounced and obvious patterning and a swirled neck and the other a more subtle coin-spot with a smooth neck. Both cruets have dark, rich tri-fold rims and spout, as well as clear greenish-amber applied handles and amber faceted stoppers. I noticed that the stoppers are also slightly different with one having a more pointed top. In the photos it shows that they are slightly different heights and realized I had switched them.
When they were switched they are much closer to even in height. Overall condition is good on all pieces with no cracks or chips, but all do have some typical rub marks from the caddy I cleaned them after the photos and what shows in one photo was grime that has been removed. The rub marks are noticeable all around, especially at the points that they touch the inside of the caddie's rings.
The caddy is marked quad plate and Pairpoint with a P in a diamond as well as the no 735. There is a possibility that one or maybe both cruets could be New England Glass but I cannot confirm that either way. The cruets are each 6" tall to the top of the stoppers, and the S & P's are 4" tall. Questions welcome and I will answer as fast as I can.
