Description: A fabulous pair of cast silver mustard pots, realistically modelled as dragons, with the head resting on the lid, and coiled body forming the pot, with barbed tail forming the handle. The back of the dragon's head acts as a thumb piece, the hinged lids open to reveal clear glass liners for holding the mustard (or other condiments). These are substantial items, they weigh over 350 grammes each without the liners, the quality is superb. The bodies were cast in 2 separate sections, the solder join is visible on the interior. The hallmarks are excellent on both pieces, the lids are hallmarked as well. We have not encountered this model before, it is possible they were specially commissioned and as such are unique. C.J. Vander was established in 1886 by Cornelius Joshua VanderPump, the firm became "the last of England's preeminent silver firms, creating exceptional silver masterpieces using the time-honored traditions of the silversmith's art. It was this firm's steadfast commitment to quality that made them the favorite of both royalty and nobility alike throughout Europe." - MS Rau, www.rauantiques.com. They amalgamated many leading silversmiths, including Eley, Fearn, Chawner, Eaton, Higgins, Elkington, Mappin & Webb, and Walker & Hall. Vander silver is always the finest quality, these dragon mustard pots are no exception. The firm closed in 2007, a great pity.
