An impressive and useful addition to the 'Appetite' collection including pepper mills and general tableware, these items will enhance the ambiance of your home-entertaining experience, making great talking points. Whether the occasion is a lunch snack of delicious sandwiches or an elaborate evening dinner, this sterling silver open mustard bowl and matching spoon is an essential part of condiment serving. Easy to wash and clean, it will always look good and an occasional polish will keep this piece looking pristine.
You can spoil yourself and buy one for your own use or a special present for someone close. It is also very suitable as a silver wedding present, a birthday present, a corporate gift or incentive gift. It can even be made in gold for the very special golden wedding present. As with most JA Campbell products this item is suitable for engraving to personalize as a gift. The design features and quality in every item made by craftsmen at JA Campbell are unique.
The body is made using the spinning method and the spoon by the lost wax cast method.
One of the final processes is that the items are punched with the JA Campbell maker's mark. In this case the initials JAC in a triangle. It is then taken to the London Assay Office, housed in Goldsmiths' Hall in London, where each component is tested (assayed) and providing the metal is better than 925 parts out of 1000 (no minute tolerance allowed), then the remaining hallmarks are punched into the surface. This is one of the earliest forms of consumer protection as (unlike some countries) the silversmith has no influence on the hallmarking process.
Upon return to the silversmith's workshop, the slight dent from the punching of the hallmarks is removed by 'planishing' with a small hammer with polished faces. This item is then polished using 4 compounds, ending with jeweller's rouge which imparts the high lustre for which silver is well known. Finally it is ultrasonically cleaned, wrapped and boxed.
The Romans most likely developed the prepared mustard we know today. As I am sure you must be aware there are many varieties of mustard which vary in strength, colour and flavour.
In the unlikely event of damage, JA Campbell provide a full repair service. You can be assured that all JA Campbell products are made up to a standard, not down to a price. Nothing leaves the Brentwood workshop until Master Silversmith John Campbell is completely satisfied.
This open mustard bowl and matching spoon is a pleasure to use today and a great investment to be handed down to future generations.
As with most things in life your silver will need occasional cleaning. This does not need to be a chore and can even be quite therapeutic. From as little as the wash up of an eating utensil to the occasional buff up with a soft dry yellow duster to remove light tarnish and an occasional polish using silver cleaner such as Silvo or Goddards.

JA Campbell products are made up to a standard and not down to a price.
