The Washington Collection: Cruet Set

George and Martha Washington owned this silver-plated cruet set and it was used to serve and display various condiments. The boat-shaped body is decorated with leaf terminal and a beaded edge, supported by four scrolled feet. The cruet stand held seven glass casters with silver tops, five of which survive. It is part of the collection at Tudor Place. Tudor Place was the Washington, D.C., home of Thomas and Martha Custis Peter. Martha Custis Peter was First Lady Martha Washington's granddaughter.
