Before a wide variety of sauces and salad dressings appeared at the supermarket, oil & vinegar on the table was often the dressing of the day. A set like this would surely have taken pride of place on the table!

Tea parties and even casual afternoon tea were once fairly common. If you served sugar cubes you needed tongs to serve them. Refined but also practical, the clean transfer of cubes reduces waste.
