This is a nice example of a chubby one pound James Keiller 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 discolouration and has taken a few small knocks, but has a timeworn patina and is still very stable and perfectly usable.

The pot has patches crazing all over which has discoloured and stained with burnt orange hues in various patches across the pot. There are no chips but there a couple of small knocks to the surface in places, most notably just above the logo on the front. There are no cracks.

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