BATEMAN FAMILY. A rare George III Mustard Pot made in London in 1814 by Peter & William Bateman.


The Mustard Pot is of an unusual square form and stands on four ball feet. The base of the main body is decorated with reeding and the rim with gadrooning. The sides display a pierced band which is engraved with unusual foliate motifs and prick dot bands. The front is engraved with a set of contemporary script initials. The high domed cover displays a shell thumb piece and an outer rim of foliate motifs and prick dot designs. The Mustard Pot also has a harp shaped handle and blue glass liner. It is very well marked on the base and on the cover. Although Hester Bateman made many unusual Mustard Pots, examples from successive members of the dynasty are not common, especially of this unusual oblong form.
