Silver mustard pot with spoon
English: Mustard pot

Mark of Thomas Daniel
Silver with glass liner

Spoon, London, 1795-6
Mark of G.Smith and William Fearn

This small pot was used for serving prepared (wet) mustard. Here the silver pot has pierced decoration and a glass liner. The liner prevented the silver from being corroded by the acidic vinegar in the mustard. This type of mustard pot, made in silver or Sheffield plate, became popular in the late 18th century.

Mustard pots were usually drum-shaped, but they were also oval, rectangular and even vase-shaped in the late 18th century. The lids were usually hinged with a raised thumbpiece and an indentation for the stem of the mustard spoon.
