Rare Vanderslice Cruet Set. It is a mechanically well crafted. It has a long tube that goes down the center which also serves as the connection to the handle to pick up the set. There are two parts on the base, one the stand and the other the plate the crystal sits upon. There is a cylinder that fits into another cylinder between the two discs that make up the base allowing the turning. The tubing is held into place by a larger tube with a nut underneath the two silver discs.  It was made in San Francisco in 1858. Style is Renaissance Revival>
