Antique Victorian White Ironstone Advertising Pot – Large Two Pound Slim James Keiller Dundee Marmalade
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 29th 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.
Overall, it is a very clean example with just some spots of staining around the top rim. The transfer is a little blurred. But, again, this isn’t uncommon; the ceramics were mass produced as packaging items and so minor faults like this wouldn’t have caused any issues.
Commonly used to store kitchen utensils, they are also perfect for use as vases, plant pots or to store artists paintbrushes.
