This is a listing for ONE antique Victorian tall slim two pound Dundee marmalade pot. A total of two are available for sale.
These are nice examples of a the slimmer version of the large 2lb James Keiller English advertising Dundee marmalade pots, dating from the turn of the Century. With chips and knocks on them, they ooze timeworn charm.
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 taller slimmer 2 pound version.
As most pots were discarded at the time, they often have spots of discoloration, hairline cracks, 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.
LEFT POT: This pot has a good clear transfer print to the front and is overall very clean. There are no chips but there are four cracks running down the side of the pot from the top rim. Two are quite short, up to about 4cm in length, the other two run down half the pot. Nonetheless, the pot is still stable and usable. £38.00
RIGHT POT: This pot has a nice clear transfer print mixed with a rich patina, covered in mixed shades of lightly stained crazing. There are four cracks running down from the top rim. They are stable but the pot does have a tinny ring to it. This pot is therefore better suited for display purposes rather than day to day use. £35.00
