Dating from the 1960s, this delightful, barrel-shaped ceramic pot/jar measures 3.25 inches tall and 2.5 inches in diameter at mid-section (narrowing to 1.75 inches at the trim). Vertical ribbing to the ceramic jar gives it a lovely texture. The front reads “Moutarde Dessaux Fils, Orléans – Maison fondée en 1789 – Marque déposée – Moutarde blanche au vinaigre, qualité extra”, which translates to : “Mustard Dessaux Sons, Orleans [a city in central France from which New Orleans, Louisiana is named after, and well-known as the birthplace of Joan of Arc] - Company established in 1789 [the year when the French Revolution began] – Registered trademark – White mustard with vinegar, extra quality”. The text on the backside translates to “the famous mustard made with famous vinegar”. The underside is stamped from the renowned manufactures Digoin & Sarreguemines, Packed in France. The jar/pot is in excellent condition with no wear, chips, cracks, etc. The interior is also in excellent condition! We use one on a desk to hold pens and pencils.
