Antique Victorian Stoneware English Advertising Pot – Medium Virol Bone Marrow Treatment

antique victorian medium stoneware virol english advertising pot

An excellent example of the medium sized stoneware pots produced for Virol bone marrow preparation treatment.

This antique jar is a lovely example of early twentieth Century advertising and packaging, with the branding applied via black transfer print under the glaze. The transfer is still clearly legible.

The transfer print reads:

“VIROL. A PREPARATION OF BONE MARROW. AN IDEAL FAT FOOD FOR CHILDREN & INVALIDS.”

The jar is in good used condition. There is a very small knock to the edge of the top rim and a couple of minor glazing faults on the sides where the stoneware has built up or has a small hole, but this is extremely common for these items.

Height, 10cm; Width, 6.5cm

UK delivery included; international delivery £20 maximum depending on location.
