A nice chippy and weathered example of the rare extra large three pound antique advertising pot for James Keiller Dundee Marmalade, with a fabulous worn patina.

These three pound versions of the James Keiller Dundee Marmalade advertising crocks are increasingly hard to find, and are highly desired amongst collectors. That's because they look great and are a fantastic large size which makes them perfect for use around the home, as well as on display. 

These pots were produced by Maling of Newcastle at the end of the nineteenth Century and early part of the twentieth Century. They were intended to be throwaway items and were often discarded with rubbish.

This example has come from an old Victorian dump, and therefore has suffered some damage in the form of a hairline crack at the back of the pot. It is reasonably significant but it is tight and the pot is still stable and is nonetheless a wonderful decorative piece. There is a smaller crack to the glazing on the inside of the pot opposite this, however, this does not penetrate through the ironstone. 

There are also patches of coffee coloured crazing all over the pot but these add to the natural, timeworn age of the pot. The transfer remains clear and visible.

Overall, though, this pot is a lovely example with the perfect patina for those who like an aged and weathered look in their collectable ironstone pieces.

Height, 14cm; Diameter, 11.5cm
