Antique Large Tall Slim Two Pound James Keiller Dundee Marmalade Advertising Pot
This is a listing for an antique Victorian tall slim two pound Dundee marmalade pot.
This is a great clean example of the slimmer version of the 2lb James Keiller English advertising Dundee marmalade pots, dating from the turn of the 19th and 20th Centuries.
These white ironstone James Keiller Dundee marmalade jars were all handmade by Maling in the late Victorian period. The company produced their marmalade pots in a variety of sizes, and this is the taller slimmer 2 pound version.
As most pots were discarded at the time, they often have spots of discoloration, minor hairline cracks, minor chips and varying shades of crazing. However, this adds to their charm as highly decorative pieces. Considering the history of these pieces, the condition of this pot is excellent.
There are no cracks and only a small flake chip to the top inside rim. This example has taken on tea stained colouring and crazing over the years, but this adds to its charm as a uniquely timeworn example. The black underglaze transfer print is still very clear and is typically Victorian, with different fonts used for different lines of typography.
Commonly used to store kitchen utensils, they are also perfect for use as vases, plant pots or to store artists paintbrushes.
