Rare Antique Victorian White Ironstone English Advertising Pot – Early Frank Cooper One Pound Chubby Marmalade
This is a listing for one standard sized Victorian one pound chubby Frank Cooper marmalade advertising pot, featuring the rarer and earlier transfer print for High Street, Oxford.
Made by the Maling factory in Newcastle around 1880, these 1 pound “chubby” size English advertising pots are versatile and popular crocks, which are perfect for a variety of uses around the modern home. The Frank Cooper company produced their advertising pots for Seville marmalade in a variety of sizes, and this is the chubbier, standard sized one pound crock. This is a rarer example, featuring an earlier transfer which dates to the 1880s. The style of the transfer is typically Victorian, with the detailing of different typography for each line of print.
As most jars were discarded with common waste at the time, they often have discoloration and chips. However, this adds to their charm as highly decorative, weathered and chippy pieces. This example shows evidence of its time discarded underground, with two hairline cracks around the top rim which are both stable. There is also crazing and patches of crazing, although these add to its timeworn appeal. There is also a scuff to the bottom left hand side of the logo, which may have been retouched as a result. However, it’s still an attractive and rare piece that would look good displayed.
