Railroad Cruet

Filed under: Item of the Day — Jason Onerheim @ 12:01 am

Clear glass cruet with stopper, used by the Great Northern Railway, likely manufactured between 1922 and 1935. The cruet has a loop handle at the top and faceted glass stopper and is etched with the logo of the Great Northern Railway, the image of a mountain goat encircled by the words “GREAT / NORTHERN”. Its size suggests that it was likely used for oil, vinegar, or salad dressing.
