Although generally speaking this is the correct lid shape for this mustard I suspect the correct lid for a Narvik one would be white with green detailing on the knob. That is how it is on the lid for the Narvik Green Cook & Serve coffee pot. Auckland Museum has one of those, as do I. Some of the mustard pots had round knobs on their lids, notably the Blue Tango one. The so-called "replacement pattern" mustard pots had square knob plain colour lids (Autumn Splendor had brown, Shasta Daisy yellow etc). This lid may be from a different pattern, Green Bamboo perhaps, which this lid would be correct for.
