Antique Victorian English White Ironstone Advertising Pot – Medium Sized J Sainsbury’s Potted Meat
This is a listing for an antique white ironstone medium-sized J Sainsbury’s potted meat crock, dating from the end of the 19th/early 20th Century.
These little ironstone jars are great examples of antique English advertising pots. In the standard size, they look wonderful on display as part of a kitchenalia or white ironstone collection, and are versatile to use in all rooms around the home.
At the time they were produced, these pots were discarded and thrown away. This example has been dug from an old Victorian dump, and therefore features aged crazing and staining. However, these features add a fantastic timeworn patina and charm.
This pot has crazing all over which has stained in various shades all over the pot. Although the under glaze black transfer print is a little faded, it is still clear and legible. There is also a small chip to the base of the pot on the right hand side. In summary, it’s a pot which is rich in pagination which would make a unique feature piece on display.
