George III Period Cruet Set
A George III-period Cruet Set by Peter & Anne Bateman of London, with brite-cut decoration and an engraved crest. All pieces have matching hallmarks and are in excellent condition. Sterling silver (.925), cut glass, and wood, English, c. 1797.
The bright-cut style was a popular method of embellishing fine silver in the late 18th century; the work of the Bateman family is considered among the best in silverware design in the early neoclassical taste.
