Cruets / Trays
Cruets are small, flat-bottomed vessels with narrow necks that are used for holding wine and water. The wine and water is used for the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass. Water and wine cruets come in a variety of shapes and sizes, but most are made of glass or another clear material, making it easy to identify contents. Sometimes, precious metals such as gold and silver are used to create the vessels.
Cruets are often sold in pairs, and some styles may be engraved or painted with a symbol or initial to indicate the contents. Most designs have a neck that is narrow enough to pour easily, but wide enough to allow for cleaning. Altar cruets are often fitted with matching stoppers or lids and sometimes come with a matching cruet tray. The designs range from simple blown glass vessels to ornately carved crystal or decorative gold pieces.
