Rare Antique Edwardian White Ironstone Beaker Advertising “Virol & Milk” by A.G. Meakin
A very rare white ironstone advertising beaker, dating from the early, featuring advertising for Virol – Virol & Milk.
This style of beaker is scarcely seen. With scripted black transfer print advertising for Virol on both sides, the beaker itself is in a wonderful clean condition and the advertising still just as clear as the time it was produced. Bearing the maker’s mark for J & G Meaking, the beaker dates from the Edwardian era, right at the start of the 20th Century.
Overall, this beaker is in very good condition. It is very clean but there is a very fine and tight hairline on one side. This runs from the top to the middle of the beaker. Given the unique nature of this beaker, with advertising on both sides, it isn’t notable from the front of the beaker. The beaker is extremely stable still but has been priced to reflect this fault. It would still make an excellent display piece as part of a kitchenalia collection.
