Rare Extra Large Three Pound Size Victorian White Ironstone James Keiller Dundee Marmalade Pot
A wonderful example of the rare extra large three pound antique advertising pot for James Keiller Dundee Marmalade, with a fabulous patina.
These 3 pound versions of the James Keiller Dundee Marmalade advertising crocks are increasingly hard to find, and are highly desired amongst collectors. That’s because they look great and are a fantastic large size which makes them perfect for use around the home, as well as on display. They are very useful as kitchen storage jars and look beautiful used as vases.
These pots were produced by Maling of Newcastle at the end of the nineteenth Century and beginning of the twentieth Century. They were intended to be throwaway items and were often discarded with rubbish.
This example has come from an old Victorian dump, but is nonetheless in excellent condition with no chips or major cracks. The glaze has developed a wonderful timeworn patina, with crazing all over which has lightly stained in places. This is darker inside the pot itself. The rim has been knocked and so has a small surface crack but the pot is all very stable. There is also some fading to the transfer, although it is still clearly visible.
Overall, though, this pot is a lovely example with the perfect patina for those who like a lightly aged look in their collectable ironstone pieces.
