Early 20th Century White Ironstone Antique Advertising Pot – Slim One Pound James Keiller Dundee Marmalade
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 minor fading to the transfer, as well as a little staining to the inside base. There is a small chip to the top inside rim, and some minor nibbles to the rest of the rim. However, there are no cracks and, overall, it has a very clean look to it.
