Vintage French Mustard (Moutarde) Jar
This is a wonderful vintage French stoneware mortared (mustard) jar that is 4 1/2 inches high and 4 inches in diameter at the base. The cork rises 1/2 inch above the rim of the jar. The cork is 2 1/2 inches in diameter. The label, Moutarde, is shown as bold 1/2 inch tall black letters.
The upper 2/3's of the jar is glazed with two shades of brown, while the bottom 1/3 of the jar has not been glazed over. The jar is hallmarked on the base with the number 500.
The condition is very good. There is one nick on the bottom band, but before the stoneware was glazed.
