This is a listing for a highly collectable and rarely seen small sized Edwardian banded white ironstone storage jar for "NUTMEGS".

White ironstone storage jars were popular in the early part of the twentieth Century, when foodstuffs were often sold in loose measures in local grocers shops. The smaller sized spice jars, like this example, are now very difficult to source and are highly sought after by collectors. This is understandable, as it is a very sweet size.

Complete with its original lid, this pot is in overall fair condition. It has aged, with coffee coloured crazing and staining all over, although it is more notable towards the top half of the pot. The top rim also has one very small crack but this is stable and the pot is in sound condition. There are also some chips to the underside of the lid but these aren't noticeable when the lid is in position. But the black 'Nutmegs' label on this pot is still very clear and the aged look has created a distinctive and unique patina.
