A very unusual George III Mustard Pot made in London in 1779 by Thomas Daniel.

The Mustard Pot is of the "Drum" form and displays a beaded rim and base. The sides are pierced with vertical pails and very unusual Neo Classical urns in roundels. The sides are also engraved with an eclectic mix of bright cut motifs and a vacant oval circular prick dot cartouche. The unusual shell thumb piece is attached to both the plain hinged cover and the scroll handle. The Mustard Pot is fully marked on the base and with the maker's mark and sterling mark on the cover. The smaller size of the Mustard Pot is most unusual and this is the first time we have seen this design of piercing. This example is in excellent condition and has a blue glass liner.

Diameter: 2.25 inches, 5.63cm.
Height to the top of the thumb piece: 2.9 inches, 7.25cm.
