Early Ground Mustard Pot

Early Ground Mustard Pot

A 19th c. wooden mustard pot in original Spanish brown paint.

Constructed like that of a tiny pantry box, the walls are formed of bentwood maple. Small pine wood discs are inserted via TINY wooden pegs. Only two large iron tacks hold the tapered fingers securely to the body.

Double scribed lines decorate both the lid and base, while also serving to align the powder holes bored in the top showing intent of original use.

Survives in a wonderfully descended state of condition with a paint surface showcasing light, historic wear. New England origin. Ca. 1830. 2"W.
