Literature. The earliest antique silver cruet frames, containing 3 castors and 2 glass bottles, were made from c.1700 onwards. Later in the 18th century the number of bottles in a cruet increased to as many as 8 or 10 containing a variety of sauces of the period such as soy, ketchup, tarragon etc, so many that little sauce labels were needed to identify the contents.
