1920s Antique White Ironstone English Isobel’s Advertising Rolling Pin
A rare example of a chunky collared 2lb white ironstone English marmalade pot for James Keiller.
These white ironstone James Keiller 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 a rarer example of a large two pound pot, with a rounded collar at the top of the jar.
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 piece is actually very clean and is in excellent condition considering it was most likely chucked out with the rubbish at the time. There is a small hairline at the top of the pot and it has also suffered a minor knock just above the logo. However, this hasn’t penetrated the piece and adds to the charm and weathered appearance. The black transfer print for James Keiller is also very clear still.
Commonly used to store kitchen utensils, they are also perfect for use as vases, plant pots or to store artists paintbrushes.
