type: condiment set, ironstone cruet set, Imari salt pepper and mustard, antique Staffordshire condiment set, Gaudy English cruet set with 5 pieces.
The pieces are: are a handled 3 leaf clover or shamrock shape tray with an open salt and wells for the matching pepper shaker and lidded mustard or jam jar with liner. The ironstone mustard and pepper hand figural bunny or rabbit heads and were originally totally gold.
There is still a lot of gold trim left on the applied flowers and beading trim. The cruet set measures overall 4.5 inches high by 5 inches in diameter.
The set is in very good +++ used vintage condition with no chips or cracks, but shows gold wear and the usual mineral specks or kiln dust from manufacturing which is normal to the age and material.
A very hard to find and beautiful set. We hardly ever find bunny sets without missing or chipped ears!
