Antique White Ironstone James Keiller Dundee Marmalade Advertising Pot – Tall, Slim One Pound Size
This is a listing for ONE antique Victorian slim one pound Dundee marmalade pot. A total of two are available for sale, in a choice of patinas.
These are nice examples of the slimmer version of the 1lb 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 slimmer 1 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 fair.
Commonly used to store kitchen utensils, they are also perfect for use as vases, plant pots or to store artists paintbrushes.
LEFT POT: This pot has a good transfer print to the front and is overall very clean with the exception of some spotted staining around the top and base rims. Most notably, there is a hairline crack which runs halfway down the pot. However, this is stable and the pot is in solid condition and is still highly usable.
RIGHT POT: SOLD
Height, 11.5cm; Width, 8cm
