This is a listing for a lovely French confiture advertising pot for Felix Potin, dating from around 1900.

Dating from the very start of the 20th Century, this French ironstone advertising pot is a scarce survivor and has a unique timeworn patina and appeal.

The Felix Potin jam or confiture pots came in a range of different styles. This teal coloured transfer is a real beauty, with the framed logo wrapping itself around the pot. The ironstone pot itself is very heavy and sturdy, a signature of the French examples.

This large two pound Confiture pot is an excellent example, with the teal coloured transfer still very clear. The pot itself has light crazing all over and it has also taken on coffee coloured staining all over, but this blends beautifully with the colouring of the underglaze transfer. There are some minor knocks and wear to the base rim but there are no significant cracks. There is also an old chip to the top rim. This has stained over time, blending in with the discolouration on the piece so that it is not overly notable.

Bearing the imprinted F.P initials on its base, together with the size marker (0.25 kilos), this is a fabulous example of an antique French jam or marmalade pot. It would make a great starter piece in a collection and they are also ideal for use around the home used as vases.
