A Cruet for Dressing or Syrup

These well-designed cruets from Civilian Objects, a company created by Nicko Elliott and Ksenia Kagner of the New York design studio Civilian, make a fine house gift or handy accessory. While they are intended for oil or vinegar, or a combination, they also beg to be filled with maple syrup for a holiday breakfast because the design that makes them so suitable for oil applies to syrup as well. They have an elegant spout, a collar to catch any drips and a textured etched finish for the stopper to prevent leaking. Made of borosilicate glass, a material that was created for laboratory equipment, they’re produced in Hungary by Trendglas Jena.

Oil and Vinegar Dispensers, 250 milliliters (8.5 ounces), $45; 500 milliliters (16.9 ounces), $50, civilianobjects.com.
