The upper register of the mustard pot showcases a curled wave design and the top part an extremely delicate acanthus fringe.
The lower register features gothic style pillars and hold a medallion still waiting for its owners’ initials.
The interior is in cobalt blue glass and may have been a later replacement, but still fits the piece perfectly.

The silver handle is typical of the Empire style designs.
The beautiful Hallmark is 1st Coq – 1st title (950/1000) – 1798 -1809 -Paris
