Victorian Glass Double Pickle Castor Jars in Silverplate Caddy with Forks

Victorian Glass Double Pickle Castor Jars in Silverplate Caddy with Forks

$395.00

Victorian dining etiquette dictated that each and every food have its proper serving method and specific serving utensil. During the Victorian era there were no multi-purpose, "one-size-fits-all" serving pieces and a well-stocked butler's pantry indicated the social place of the family. Case in point is the pickle jar (also referred to as a castor). Not only did pickle castors convey status during the 19th-century, they connoted one’s power to have servants. Household kitchen staff were responsible for preparing and preserving the jar’s contents (pickled produce) then using it to display the fruits of their labor.

From Victorian England, we are delighted to present this impeccable antique glass double pickle jar set in its original silverplate caddy. The ground glass lids are especially weighty and the glass has lovely faceted details. In true Victorian fashion, the set also includes the original silverplated pickle forks that neatly rest on holders on each side of the caddy. 

An absolutely magnificent treasure from the Victorian era, this pickle castor set will be a wonderful addition to your collection of serving pieces.


Strictly one-of-a-kind and subject to prior sale. In excellent antique condition. Jars measure 5 1/4" tall x 3" in diameter; Caddy is 8 3/4" in length x 10 1/2" tall x 5 1/4" wide; Pickle Forks are 9 1/4" in length.
