Date1788 – 1789
Eight crystal bottles in silver stand. Classical style cruet stand with pierced divider, reeded railing, columnar supports, and claw-and-ball feet. One of the smaller bottles was made in 1910-11, one of the larger bottles also appears to be a replacement. Bottles are marked with "HC" in a rectangle. Stand is marked "RH" in an oval, possibly referring to Robert Hennel, mid-19th century. The small replaced bottle is marked with "SG" in a rectangle.
