A fine and unusual piece of black Wedgewood Jasperware, this is a mustard or jelly jar. The body of the jar is solid black, the decoration white in the "Sacrifice Figures" designs. The lid and spoon (which appears to be original to the set) are silver-plated. Interior is glazed, so it can be used and will not stain.
It's 4" tall and 3.25" in diameter at the foot. Spoon is 5.5" long
Condition: as new, no wear or damage. The bottom of the jar is a bit rough to the touch, but that's in the manufacturing (having handled many items of Jasper over the years, I get this sense that solid black caused problems in the manufacturing process). Plating is currently tarnished, but otherwise fine and complete. We'll polish it up before we send it out.
Mark: Impressed Wedgwood marks on the bottom of the jar. Dated either 1964 or 1969 (can't quite make out the last digit). Spoon is marked "EPNS Made in England". Lid is unmarked.
