One Good Turn

What's It Wednesday #48
Hi everyone and welcome to another What's It Wednesday. I'm sorry for being MIA but I've been dealing with some major computer issues. But with that behind me, I'm excited for the holiday season. Today I'm sharing one of my latest finds, a seven piece cruet set. One look and I was in love with the frilly ornateness of it.
Cruet sets were a Victorian invention that held the condiment of the day. The silver topped ones held salt and pepper, and the center is a mustard pot.
The crystal stoppered bottles held oils and vinegars.
My favorite is the ornate detailing and draping of the silver.
But there's another secret, it turns like a Lazy Susan! I'd never seen one like that before. For sixty bucks, I think I got a steal!
Thanks for stopping by and happy shopping!
