A delicate French Silver and Crystal ‘Travel’ Mustard Pot by ‘Maître Orfèvre’ Ernest ESCHWEGE, in the very elegant ‘Directoire’ Style.
This charming little guy is round shaped with the main register of the silver body showcasing gothic style arches.
The pot stands on three little silver feets decorated with a plam frond.
The lid is slightly dome shaped and the same palm frond can be seen on its handle.
The interior is in cobalt blue crystal and absolutely intact, no chips at all..
It is noted as being a travel mustard pot because of its tiny size!
Just a lovely little guy, quite rare to come by.
The Hallmark is Minerve -1st title (950/1000)– 1838 -1911 –Paris
