This is a small fly-fishing creel shaped cruet, in hallmarked silver.
Fly fishing creels have been used by anglers for centuries. The creels traditionally featured a woven wicker construction to allow the necessary air ventilation for keeping caught fish cool and fresh.
This cruet has a basket-woven pattern, and a lid that mimics a traditional creel basket lid, compete with the rectangular slot used to add more fish to the fishing basket. The cruet comes with a similarly themed fly-fishing silver spoon, with a curved fish handle.
This is an attractive piece for any table setting.
Dimensions: 2 1/4" H x 3" W x 1 1/2" D
