Quintessentially rococo is this frame to hold condiment containers for the dinner table. Sugar, pepper, and other spices would have been dispensed from silver casters and oil and vinegar from glass cruets. Most silver cruet stands used in America were imported from England and were equipped, as is this New York example, with a central openwork handle, shell feet, and an asymmetrical cartouche for an engraved armorial or script monogram.
