This is a listing for a scarce large Victorian two pound chubby James Keiller Dundee marmalade pot.

Made by the Maling factory in Newcastle in around 1900, these larger two pound "chubby" size advertising pots are harder to source.

The James Keiller company produced their advertising pots for their Dundee marmalade in a variety of sizes, and this is the rarer example of the chubbier, larger 2lb crock.

As most jars were discarded with common waste at the time, they are often in a chippy condition, with discoloration, cracks and chips. However, this adds to their charm as highly decorative, weathered and chippy pieces.

This pot is in a chippy condition, having been recovered from an old Victorian dumping ground. There is a chip to the inside top rim at the front. There are also two hairline cracks running down from the top of the pot, although these are stable.

Notably, the pot also has aged stained crazing all over. Despite these flaws, the logo is still clear and visible.

A highly decorative antique piece which would add a rustic touch to your interior.
