This is a listing for a rare antique Victorian English Advertising Pot for Young's Potted Shrimps of Morecambe, in the harder to find blue colour way.

These shallow English advertising pots are quite scarce, especially in reasonably clean condition like this with the black transfer print font still exceptionally clear. In Victorian times - as now - a trip to a British seaside resort was an extremely popular pastime, especially for those wanting to escape the crowded and unhealthy big cities. These pots would have been used by customers purchasing small servings of shrimp.

Recovered from a Victorian dump, it's common for many old advertising pots like this to have lots of imperfections, crazing, staining, chips and cracks. These aged features all add to the character of pieces like this today.

In spite of its history, this pot is overall quite clean with just some minor discolouration to the top and base rims. There are some marks to the black under glaze transfer but it’s still very clear. There is no crazing, cracks or chips. is some staining but this is focused mainly around the top and base rims.
