Antique Victorian Weathered James Keiller Dundee Marmalade Advertising Pot
This is a listing for ONE antique Victorian one pound chubby Dundee marmalade pot. A total of two are available to choose from.
These are nice examples of a chubby 1lb James Keiller English advertising Dundee marmalade pot, dating from the turn of the 19th and 20th Centuries. Although in a chippy condition, this adds to their charm and they still have wonderful clear transfer print logos
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 wider chubby 1lb version, which is a personal favourite.
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. Both these pots have suffered some minor damage in their time, but they have a timeworn patina and are still stable.
LEFT POT: There are no cracks on this pot although it is a little bit chippy around the top rim. There is lightly stained crazing all over the pot as well as some patches of staining around the top rim.
RIGHT POT: This pot is also a little bit chippy around the top rim of the pot. There is a small hairline crack running down from one of these cracks to the top right of the logo, however this is only about 1cm in length and is stable. There are patches of light crazing but overall this is a clean pot.
Commonly used to store kitchen utensils, they are also perfect for use as vases, plant pots or to store artists paintbrushes.
