Victorian Pattern Glass
Oil & Vinegar Cruets Store

Including Condiment Trays
     Cruets, from the French Cruye or Cruie, are small pitchers with stoppers used for oil or vinegar.  Oil / vinegar cruets were introduced into the pressed glass world about 1880 - 1885, although there were a few made during the 'Flint Era'.
     Their popularity as a table item peaked around 1900. Even the more popular patterns made before 1880 and after about 1910, did not include this form.
     It was not uncommon for blown cruets made with applied handles to exhibit a ‘heat check’ at the handle. According to Wm. Heacock, many collectors do not consider it damage in the truest sense, inasmuch as the cruet left the factory in this state. He distinguishes between a ‘heat check’ and a crack which can be felt from inside the neck.
     If you use your cruet for vinegar, do not store the vinegar in it or you will risk causing a cloudy glass ‘sickness’ which can only be removed by expensive professional cleaning.
     Some cruets came in sets with shakers or other condiment bottles and sometimes the sets were sold in metal or glass holders or sitting on a matching glass tray. See some such 'condiment' trays below the cruets in this Store.
     The stoppers for cruets were sometimes patterned to match and sometimes ‘generic’ designs made by a factory to fit various of their patterns. Attribution as to OS (original stopper) and NOS (not original stopper) is generally accepted when found pictured in old catalogs. But that is not always foolproof. And some patterned cruets left the factory, (or factories if they were made by more than one company), with more than one type of stopper.
     The ‘burning question’ for collectors is whether or not they are satisfied if a stopper looks appropriate but is not proven to be original.  That answer is strictly personal preference.
