Victorian White Ironstone J Sainsbury’s Bloater Paste English Advertising Pots
This is a listing for one of the rarer shaped antique Victorian J Sainsbury’s shallow bloater paste pots. A total of three are available to choose from.
These ironstone English advertising pots were handmade to be sold containing food products in the J Sainsbury’s grocers shops. Sainsbury’s still exists and is now one of the top supermarkets in the UK, although bloater paste has now been rebranded!
The pots all feature the same black transfer print advertising their bloater paste. As most jars were discarded with common waste at the time, they often have discoloration and chips. However, this adds to their charm as highly decorative, weathered and chippy pieces.
These examples were recently recovered from a Victorian dump. In spite of this, they are all in great overall condition, with varying degrees of chippiness and crazing. Unsurprisingly, there are some imperfections, as listed below, but these aged features add to their character, and would make a unique talking point amongst a white ironstone or English advertising pot collection.
LEFT POT: Nice and clean, with light crazing all over. Has nibbles to the rim of the base, and also a small chip which have discolored with age. £18.00
MIDDLE POT: SOLD
RIGHT POT: SOLD
Height, 5.5cm; Width, 6.5cm
