Chippy One Pound White Ironstone James Keiller Dundee Marmalade Pot
A nice example of a chippy and weathered 1lb James Keiller English advertising marmalade pot, dating from the turn of the Century.
These white ironstone James Keiller Dundee marmalade jars were all handmade by Maling in the late Victorian period. The company produced their marmalade pots in a variety of sizes, and this is the slim skinny 1lb version.
As most pots were discarded at the time, they often have spots of discoloration, minor hairline cracks, minor chips and varying shades of crazing. However, this adds to their charm as highly decorative pieces.
Commonly used to store kitchen utensils, they are also perfect for use as vases, plant pots or to store artists paintbrushes.
This pot is in fair condition for its age. There is a small chip to the inside rim, plus a small hairline running down. There are also a few nice patches of weathered and aged crazing. However, the pot is structurally sound and is very attractive with its aged features.
Please check my other listings as I do have a number of different styles of James Keiller pots available, and discounts are available for multiple purchases.
