Blue and White Cruet Set, Delft circa 1710

Marked LVE in blue for Lambertus van Eenhoorn, the owner of De Metaale Pot (The Metal Pot) factory from 1691 until 1721, or his widow Margaretha Teckmann until 1724

Comprising two ewers, covers and stand, all painted with wide lambrequin borders, the handles with dots and stripe/line devices and a scrollwork border, the spouts of the ewers with the letter O or A, and the covers with a demi-flowerhead.

A cruet is any small container with a flat-bottom, narrow neck, spout, handle, and stopper. It is used to hold liquid condiments, such as olive oil and vinegar. The name is believed to have derived from the Old French word crue, which means earthen pot. Others say it is from the Dutch word kruicke, which was often spelled crewet.

This cruet set, consisting of an olive oil and vinegar container, could be used at meal times. Cruet sets like the present were probably a late seventeenth century invention, when fine dining became an exceedingly important social ritual and the dinner table underwent considerable changes.

As with many Delftware objects for the dinner table, the shape of this cruet set was probably inspired on a silver model.
