Antique Early 20th Century White Ironstone James Keiller Dundee Marmalade Pot – 1 Pound Slim Version
A great example of an antique James Keiller Dundee marmalade pot, dating from the early 1900s.
Dundee marmalade crocks were produced in a wide variety of different shapes and sizes for the popular Scottish brand, James Keiller. They were produced by Maling of Newcastle at the end of the nineteenth Century and beginning of the twentieth Century. Intended as throwaway items and were often discarded with rubbish.
These one pound slim versions of the James Keiller were most commonly available, and they are popular amongst collectors today as great starter pieces. They look great on display, but also are a fantastic size to serve a multitude of purposes around the home, for example to hold cutlery in, for use as a vase and even as toothbrush holders.
Despite coming from an old dump, this example – dating from the early part of the 20th Century- is in fine condition. There is some mild surface crazing and some staining to the bottom of the pot near the base rim. However, there are no chips or cracks. The transfer print logo on the front is very clear still, and it has an overall clean look to it. There is some staining to the inside of the pot.
