The Mustard Pot is of an unusual oblong form and stands on a reeded foot. The rim is decorated with gadrooning and the main body is pierced with a band of Greek Key designs and various prick dot and wriggle work bands. The high domed cover terminates in a ball finial and the side is engraved with the contemporary initial "C". The very unusual reeded scroll handle and "chair back" thumbpiece are both designs which we had not previously seen. The Mustard Pot has a blue glass liner, is fully marked on the cover and body and is in excellent condition. Georgian Mustard Pots from the English Provincial centres of silversmithing are extremely rare and it is many years since we last saw a Sheffield Pot.
