Learn More About Condiment Sets

It is said that no stylish Edwardian or Victorian table would be without a condiment set. Today a mere couple of bottles or jars would probably classify as a condiment set. In the past however, it was something far more elaborate. Often, there would be a separate stand; complete with a handle and feet, and the standard number of vessels was as few as four and as many as ten or even more!

It is believed that condiment sets originated in France, where dressing food (in particular salads) was customary. The condiment set made its way to Britain in the 17th Century. Although at this time, only the fanciest homes contained condiment sets. It wasn't until the 18th Century that condiment sets seemed to get bigger and bigger and by the Victorian era, they became a phenomenon. Cut glass and silver were the materials of choice. Different vessels were added around this time, such as: sugar casters, pepper and salt shakers and stoppered bottles holding vinegar and oil, while mustard was kept in a lidded pot.

Condiment sets tended to get smaller in the 19th Century, although some still contained as many as ten vessels (sometimes referred to as Breakfast sets)! The Edwardian taste tended to favour only three or four piece condiment sets. Any more were deemed vulgar and pretentious.

Materials used for the condiment sets also changed in the Edwardian period. Mass-manufactured moulded and pressed glass was used widely, while pottery and porcelain sets also made an appearance towards the end of the century. Condiment sets became so popular that few dinner services were made without matching condiment sets.
