Fabulous glazed Escoffier stoneware jar, used to store mustard. Its heritage is intriguing as the backstamp states that the jar was made in England.
English stoneware of this timeframe was produced mainly in Staffordshire, Derbyshire, Nottingham and London.
Auguste Escoffier was an illustrious chef who popularised traditional French cuisine in England and wowed Victorian high society at The Savoy, The Ritz and The Carlton.
Featuring beautiful typography, the jar is a beautiful deep speckled greige, complete with subtle crazing and rustic bumps and bubbles in the glaze, which give it lovely character.
Free from cracks and chips and ready to be re-loved.
Looks lovely filled with wildflowers on a shelf or a wonderful addition to a transferware or stoneware collection.
