I have scoped cruets to include all recepticals designed to hold spices and condiments on the table. I have also tried to break this section based on basic shapes as opposed to the purpose of the containers. I am describing it like this because not all bottles, bowls, cups etc.. are made for a fixed purpose. I have put cream jugs in the Jugs section.
If you don't have much budget cruets are great thing to collect. You main problem will be that references are thin on the ground in the UK. Where I don't have references I may try and use cross references to decanters etc.. As this section expands I will try to fill that gap, by leaning on my large collection of books.
