Rare Extra Large Plain White Ironstone Antique Early 20th Century Banded Storage Jar
This is a listing for ONE excellent and rare example of an extra large antique plain white banded Edwardian ironstone storage jar. There are a choice of two available, at slightly different heights, both of which are in excellent clean condition.
Dating from the early 20th, white ironstone storage jars like this were popular in the early part of the twentieth Century, when foodstuffs were often sold in loose measures in local grocers shops. These types of pots are becoming harder and harder to source, especially in such nice condition as this.
A nice extra large size, there’s plenty of space to store food of any type in these jars and they will also make an impression on display. In clean condition, both have it some minor age marks in places. There are some nibbles and chips to the edges of the bases of both lids from where they have been used over the years. There are also some minor firing faults in places, none of which detract. There are no cracks on either of the jars and they are in excellent solid condition.
The largest jar measures 19.5cm in height and 18cm at its widest. The smaller pot measures 18.5cm in height and is 16.5cm at its widest.
