Antique Batty & Co Mustard Pot

Antique Batty & Co Mustard Pot

$175.00

With the excitement of an archeological discovery, we're always smitten by antique advertising pots! Whether for a English mustard or a French confiture, these über-charming ironstone pots are the perfect example of "one man's trash is another man's treasure"!

In the late 1800s, these pots were commonly found at grocers and pharmacies and were used to hold anything from anchovy paste to meat to toothpaste to shaving soap. At the time, they were simply utilitarian containers and once the contents were used, the pots were discarded. Since organized trash collection was not widespread at the time, many people simply dug a hole in their backyard and buried their trash in the ground. As these ironstone pots were sturdy, many survived being buried for over a century and are discovered in backyard gardens or at building sites!

Found at market in northern England, we are thrilled to present this absolutely charming Antique Batty & Co. Mustard Pot. Having survived for well over 100 years, the pot is in extremely good condition with minimal signs of age and use. A highly collectible example of a 19th-century advertising pot, the collar of the mushroom-shaped pot is in a brilliant shade of royal blue which contrasts beautifully with the white ironstone body. The descriptions and typography are what make any of these pots beloved, and this Batty's pot is no exception!

Full of antique charm, this wonderful souvenir of a bygone era will bring the spirit of Victorian England to your home today.


Strictly one-of-a-kind and subject to prior sale. In good antique condition with crazing and a stable, discreet hairline crack at the rim as shown in the alternate images. 4.25" tall x 3.5" in diameter.

Learn More About Batty & Co.

Founded by George Batty (1800 - 1874) in London in 1824, the company built their business producing jarred mustards and pickles. In 1834, they acquired the recipes of a popular celebrity chef of the era, Dr. William Kitchiner and began also producing sauces branded with his name. 

Batty & Co was acquired in 1905 by HJ Heinz, who wanted a British manufacturing base. The Batty brand was phased out in 1910 and its products were rebranded under the Heinz label.
