Antique Early 20th Century French Mustard Advertising Pot By Sarreguemines – Grey Poupon
A lovely example of an antique French white ironstone advertising pot for Grey-Poupon Dijon Mustard, dating from the early 1900s.
Made by Sarreguemines, this is a sturdy and heavy white ironstone pot. Available in a range of sizes, this is the mid-sized pot. Bearing the Digoin Sarreguemines mark on it’s base, this pot was made in the early 1900s.
I am always in awe of the quality and detail that goes into antique French advertising pots, and this little pot is no exception. In spite of its age, the double sided black transfer print logos advertising the Grey Poupon brand of Dijon mustard are still exceptionally clear. The detail in these prints is astonishing, with a grapevine circling a shield on the front of the pot, and a ribboned banner around the top of the pot. Considering the fact that these pots were often throwaway items, the detail is astounding.
This pot is in excellent condition, with no chips or cracks. The main signs of wear are some discolouration to the top rim and some minor blurring of the transfer print. It comes with its original cork stopper, which can be removed if desired.
