Although dating from the Victorian era, this mustard pot presents more as Georgian in style.

Having a bulbous, cauldron shape body, it is relatively large, standing 2 1/2" to the top of the lid, 3" to the highest point on the thumb lift, is 2 1/2" at the widest, and weighs a substantial 4.0 T. oz.

The solid handle is a double cee scroll form, with an acanthus leaf detail.

The interior has a gold finish, which is intact on the lid, but some worn in the body.

The lid is engraved in a handsome, period, leaf script "HR" monogram.

It is fully marked on the sidewall for London, 1864, Sterling, and maker George Fox, who is noted in "Jackson's Hallmarks" as a "Member of the important Fox family." It is also countermarked on the underside of the lid.

It is in excellent condition. Apart from on pinprick dimple near the handle base, it is free of dents, bends, or breaks. The handle fits evenly and the hinge is snug and free of play. The finish is even and smooth.
