Item Number: #487
Production Dates: 1935-1965
I seem to like quite a few of the Covered Containers in the American line, and the Mustard piece is no exception. If intact, the Mustard dish should have a total of three pieces – the Mustard dish, a Cover, and a Spoon. The authentic Fostoria Spoon is glass, not metal. The Mustard has an approximate height of 3¾” (from the bottom to the top of the Cover).
The Mustard dish is an item that you can still find fairly easy today. It was produced for about thirty years, circa 1935 – 1965. That being said, what is more difficult is finding the three pieces (Mustard, Cover, and Spoon) all together. Many times you will find the Mustard and Cover, or just the Mustard by itself. It is even possible to find the Mustard and Cover, and a replacement spoon (not original to the piece) made out of metal or silver.
Here is a picture of all three original elements – the Mustard, the Cover, and the Spoon. Notice that the Cover has a notch in it, just big enough for the glass Spoon to sit in the Mustard dish comfortably.
