Edwardian Antique White Ironstone Butter & Preserve Picnic Pots By Coracle
A rare opportunity to acquire a small set of Edwardian white ironstone picnic pots for Butter & Preserve, complete with their original lids, with indented and black transfer print script on top.
Carrying the Coracle marks on their bases, these white ironstone pots would have been part of an Edwardian picnic set. Not quite a pair – they have different Coracle marks indicating they were made at slightly different times – these small picnic pots are nonetheless extremely hard to find. It is even more rare to find a matching butter & preserve pot, so I will not be separating these pots.
Both the pots have the words “Butter” and “Preserve” indented around the edges of the lids, and are finished with black transfer print.
Although these pots are missing their original leather straps, they are still perfect for day to day use in the kitchen, and would make an extra special addition to the breakfast table.
Both these pots do show signs of their more than 100 years of life. The Butter pot has nibbles to the rim of its lid and the lip of the main pot. Its lid has a number of discolored age and firing marks to its base. There is also some discoloration to the main pot in places and some surface crazing, most notably on the base and inside the pot. The Preserve pot also has some nibbles to the rim of its lid, plus there is some surface crazing on the lid and to the top of the main jar.
However, overall, they are a great fresh colour still and have no chips or major cracks. They are also in solid structural condition.
