Rare Large Two Pound Chubby Sized Frank Cooper Oxford English Marmalade Advertising Pot
This is a listing for a large Victorian two pound chubby Frank Cooper marmalade pot.
Made by the Maling factory in Newcastle in around 1900, these larger two pound “chubby” size English advertising pots are harder to source.
The Frank Cooper company produced their advertising pots for Seville marmalade in a variety of sizes, and this is the more scarce example of the chubbier, larger 2lb crock.
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.
Overall, this pot is a little chippy but it is in overall quite clean condition with a clear transfer print. There are a number of surface scrapes where the glaze has come away, mainly on the front of the pot. Although these are visible on the transfer too, the vast majority of the transfer can still be seen. There are also some patches of stained crazing. There is a small chip to the side at the base.
