A very interesting and charmingly decorated pair of Chinese export porcelain covered mustard pots, each taking the form of pots-de-creme of the period with their gilded berry knops and double strap handles, but with each cover notched to accommodate a small mustard spoon. The hand-painted Famille Rose enameled decoration with figural Mandarin scenes, the covers with elaborate borders of flowers, insects and exotic birds. Measuring 3 1/2″ x 3 1/2″, in great condition with gilded detail. A very rare form. Circa 1820.
