The listing is for a beautiful CRUET & STOPPER in the Dewdrop pattern by Model Flint. Dew Drop has gone by many names and produced by multiple glass companies, and is most commonly known as "Hobnail." Dewdrop or Dew Drop was released by Model Flint Findley in 1892.

The MODEL FLINT CRUET & STOPPER  stands 6 ¼” tall with the stopper and 5" without. It is designed with a "Sham", or a raised center in the base, allowing the container to hold less liquid.

It is great condition other than a small pinpoint nick on bottle neck. The cruet is marked accordingly because of the pinpoint nick.

The pattern is listed on the Early American Pattern Glass Society and in Ron Teal's book, Model Flint Glass Company of Albany, Indiana on page 29 as Dew Drop. The release date of the cruet is shown as 1892 in the article Model Flint Glass Company published by the Findlay Visitor's Bureau.
