Oil Cruet

“The shape of oil cruets at the time clearly indicated what was expected of them, but reality left much to be desired. The latter consideration led me to design an oil dispenser that, aside from a dignified presence, would need no explanation and would comply with the intended use without inconvenience.” – Rafael Marquina

This award-winning, ingenious oil cruet solves the problem of dripping – a clever solution that had never actually been explored within the functional design of this particular object.  The benefits of the Nanimarquina oil cruet are numerous… its spout design enables a steady, smooth, and precise flow of oil; the coarseness of the glass associated with the cruet’s neck and spout base ensures that both pieces fit together perfectly while serving along with creating an airtight seal that protects the olive oil within the cruet; its removable spout allows for easy cleaning and filling; a slot in the spout’s base allows entry of air and collects the olive oil droplets, returning them to the flask; the cruet’s wide diameter footprint prevents accidental tipping; and its composition in transparent glass both avoids leakage while affording the easy visual identification of its contents.  Dishwasher safe. Manufactured by Nanimarquina.

Designed in 1961.

Dimensions: 3.75” Diameter (Base), 6” H

Nanimarquina

The contemporary rug collections by acclaimed designer Nani Marquina are distinct and inspired. From her Nomad collection, woven with ultra-soft Ghazni wool from Afghanistan’s native sheep, to the playful and colorful designs of the Sybilla collection, each piece is thoughtfully crafted to make an artistic statement.

Nanimarquina rugs serve both to enhance existing décor and act as foundational statement pieces. Many of her designs feature intentionally imperfect shapes and lines, as often found in nature, conveying freedom and self-expression. The designer plays with texture to create floor coverings that are as visually captivating as they are tactile.
