 1 5/6" W x 4 2/3" H.  WILLIAMSBURG exclusive!
This set is based on a spice pot made about 1750-1780 by Henry Joseph in London, England, now in the Colonial Williamsburg collections. The original was probably used for mustard, cinnamon, or other spice. Spices were costly in the 18th century and a spice pot like this would convey the status of its owner. Pewter, instead of ceramic, would have been owned by the gentry, or possibly an aristocrat or lord—although it was more likely the highest in society would have sterling silver. The spice pot also shows the sophisticated palate of the owner in terms of food that was eaten.
Use metal  polishing cloth to keep shiny.
