HESTER BATEMAN. An unusual George III Mustard Pot made in London in 1789 by Hester Bateman.


The Mustard Pot is oval in form with a reeded base and rim. The sides are unusually pierced with two bands of vertical pails and roundels, interspersed with very unusual floral garlands and prick dot bands. The high domed cover is decorated with an attractive outer bright cut border. This example has a scroll and pierced fan shaped thumb piece. The front of the main body also displays a vacant navette shaped cartouche. The Mustard Pot is in excellent condition and is fully marked on the base and with the makers mark and sterling mark on the cover. This is the first time we have seen this unusual design of piercing from the workshops of Hester Bateman.
