This is a listing for an antique Victorian one pound chubby Dundee marmalade pot.

This is a nice clean example of a chubby 1lb James Keiller English advertising Dundee marmalade pot, 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 wider chubby 1lb version, which is a personal favourite.

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. This pot has suffered some minor damage, but has a natural timeworn patina and is still very stable and perfectly usable.

The pot has patches of light crazing in places, some of which has stained with burnt orange hues. The base rim has some knocks to it and there is also one crack on the side of the pot. But this is tight and the pot is in very stable condition.

Commonly used to store kitchen utensils, they are also perfect for use as vases, plant pots or to store artists paintbrushes.
