In terms of cruets, it doesn’t get much better than this one in Hawkes’ Venetian pattern.
The Venetian pattern conforms very nicely to this bulbous cruet and wraps around the entire base of this piece. A chain of 8-pointed hobstars wraps around the upper portion of the cruet. This chain is met by extended split-vesicas of crosshatching which stretch all the way to the base of the cruet. The handle is triple notched, which is an extremely nice touch on a smaller piece!
Aside from a tiny fleabite in the cutting, this cruet is in tip-top shape. It measures 5 1/2″ high and just under 4″ wide. A lovely cabinet piece!
