Sterling Holloware: Mustard Pots

Antique Sterling Silver Mustard Pots

Mustard pots, as their name suggests, are vessels used to serve mustard during meals. They were a standard part of every table beginning in the early 1700s. Early 18th-century sterling silver mustard pots are rare to find these days. It’s more obtainable to find antique sterling silver mustard pots from the later part of the 18th century. Sterling silver mustard pots would have either a cylindrical body and a flat lid or an oval body with a domed top. You’ll find that the body of the pot is pierced and fitted with a blue glass liner. Nelson & Nelson Antiques has been serving the New York City area for over 45 years, and we have a fabulous collection of antique sterling silver mustard pots for sale.
