My two pickle castors sit on the side board in my dining area. They were a gift from my father-in-law. I just cherish them!
Quoted from the Atlanta Antique Gallery
Victorian Antique pickle castors are a table accessory generally consisting of a silver plated frame fitted with a glass insert, matching silver plated lid, and matching tongs. Antique Pickle castors were very popular during the Victorian era. The antique pickle castor inserts may be found either in early American pattern glass (EAPG) or in art glass. As a rule, the fancier ornate and figural frames were reserved for the more intricately decorated jars of fine enamels and rich glass forms such as peach blow, cranberry, blue, amber and rare green inserts.
