rare antique miniature edwardian white ironstone advertising pot natures herbal ointment quack medicine

This is a listing for a miniature late Victorian/Edwardian white ironstone English miniature advertising pot for Nature’s Herbal Ointment, produced by Fredk Hale of Covent Garden.

Dating from around the end of the 19th/start of the 20th Century, this antique advertising pot is a lovely example.

This chemists pot is a fantastic example of antique advertising, packed with lots of detailed text about the benefits its use could bring. Back then, bold and wild medicinal claims were commonly used in advertising.

This pot is in good overall good condition, with no chips. The black transfer text is very clear still. Having recently been recovered from an old Victorian dumping ground, there are some natural signs of age, including some stained cracks and crazing. However, the cracks are tight and stable and add to its authentic timeworn charm.

Height, 4.5cm; Width, 4cm
