HOBBS NO. 101 / DAISY AND BUTTON FIVE-BOTTLE CASTER SET, sapphire blue, consisting of two mustard pots and three salt + pepper shakers with mostly period metal lids/components, all fit into a quadruple-plate rotating stand marked for "SIMPSON HALL MILLER & CO". Casters each likely Hobbs, Brockunier & Co. Pattern introduced 1884. 14" HOA.

Condition

About average condition with each caster having issues including moderate pattern flaking and/or small or large chips to base edges or shoulders, some wear and losses to surface of plated stand; one shaker with multiple short cracks and bruises, and it seems likely that the set is assembled with a mustard and an extra shaker having been swapped in for lost oil bottles which would have had glass stoppers.
