Antique Victorian White Ironstone Advertising Pot – Large Two Pound James Keiller Dundee Marmalade

1930s antique Meredith Drew glass shop counter advertising display jar

This is a lovely crazed and chippy version of the tall and slim two pound white ironstone James Keiller Dundee marmalade advertising pot, dating from the late Victorian period.

These white ironstone James Keiller marmalade pots were all handmade by Maling of Newcastle in the late Victorian period. The company produced their marmalade pots in a variety of sizes, and these are examples of the thinner and taller large two pound pot.

These pots feature a large black transfer print advertising James Keiller’s Dundee Marmalade, which won numerous awards at international exhibitions.

As most jars were discarded with common waste at the time, they often have spots of discoloration, minor hairlines and chips. However, this adds to their charm as highly decorative pieces. Despite coming from a dig, this pot is in an overall very good condition. There is some stained crazing all over the pot, but this all adds to its patina and timeworn charm. There is also a chip to the edge of the top rim, towards the back of the pot. This is on the edge so consequently isn’t too notable from the front, when the pot is on display. And there are no hairlines, and the black transfer print logo is still very clear.
