From Prussia With Love

Visitors to the National Mustard Museum are always enthralled by our displays of mustard pots from around the world. None are more delicate or intriguing than our RS Prussia porcelain pots, of which we have but a few.

Reinhold Schlegelmilch began making porcelain table pieces as early as the 1860s in Suhl, Germany (State of Prussia). His mustard pots have become legendary. C.L. Riley, one of the country’s most accomplished RS Prussia collectors, is generously donating his vast collection of mustard pots to the National Mustard Museum. We expect to have them on site by the end of April and, after photographing and cataloging them, we will begin showing them in May.

Mustard pots of this quality and significance need a good home. It will take about $10,000 to transport these pots to Wisconsin and properly place them in new exhibit cases. If you would like to help sponsor the Riley RS Prussia Exhibit (a new permanent exhibit), please contact the Curator.
