A small salt glazed stoneware mustard pot or jug with three applied sprigs including flowers and a scene of two putti (cupids) with a cart pulled by a lamb, which is an allegorical image of Spring.

The handle appears to be hand-pulled rather than extruded, with a rolled lower handle terminal. The rim is recessed to accommodate a mounted metal rim and lid. The upper body and handle have been dipped in a metallic looking iron oxide stained slip and the whole jug has a salt-glaze.

The style, glaze and the sprigs all suggest a date of manufacture circa 1825 to 1840. English.
