SOLD - Sterling Silver Mustard Pot by Matthew Boulton - Antique George III

Description


This fine antique George III sterling silver mustard pot has a plain oval form.


The body of the mustard pot is embellished with a bright cut engraved crest depicting a demi-lion holding between the paws an escallop to one side and the bright cut engraved initials ‘IJ’ to the other.


The upper rim of this fine example of Georgian silverware is ornamented with an impressive gadroon decorated border.


The mustard pot has a plain applied moulded border to the lower rim.


This mustard pot is fitted with a plain hallmarked domed hinged cover surmounted with an impressive scallop shell decorated thumbpiece.


This impressive example of antique silverware has a ribbed angular handle.


The mustard pot is fitted with a removable frosted glass liner.


This Georgian mustard pot was crafted by the renowned and collectable Birmingham silversmith Matthew Boulton; such items do not often stand the test of time, and to find a piece in such excellent condition by this maker is becoming increasingly scarce.


Date: 1817

Condition


This antique mustard pot is a very good gauge of silver, fine quality and in exceptional condition.

The applied decoration is very sharp.

Full hallmarks struck to the surface are all worn due to their location and in keeping with age, but remain legible under a 10x magnifier.


Reflections in photographs may detract from the true representation of this fine example of Georgian silverware.
