This is a listing for ONE antique Victorian tall slim two pound Dundee marmalade pot. A total of two are available for sale.
These are excellent examples of a the slimmer version of the 2lb James Keiller English advertising Dundee marmalade pots, dating from the turn of the Century.
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 these two pots is very good.
Commonly used to store kitchen utensils, they are also perfect for use as vases, plant pots or to store artists paintbrushes.
