History: Pickle castors are practical and functional. They hold pickles in pretty containers for serving at luncheon, tea or the dinner table. But, as with all things Victorian, they didn't stop at functional. Victorian silver pickle castors are things of beauty. They are aesthetic masterpieces that blend the glimmer of beautiful art glass with the glint of silver. The ornate silver frames often bear fanciful figural flowers, cherubs or animals. The glass jars displayed the height of the Victorian glassblowers' art
