Antique Victorian White Ironstone English Advertising Pot – Large J Sainsburys Bloater Paste
This is a listing for ONE of the rarer taller examples of the antique white ironstone J Sainsbury’s bloater paste crocks, dating from the end of the 19th/early 20th Century. A total of two are available to choose from, each with a rich and timeworn patina.
These white ironstone jars are great examples of antique English advertising pots. In the harder to find larger size, they look wonderful on display as part of a kitchenalia or white ironstone collection, and are versatile to use in all rooms around the home.
At the time they were produced, these pots were discarded. These have been dig from an old Victorian dump, and therefore feature aged crazing and staining. However, they are all in good condition with clearly visible black transfer print logos, which is remarkable considering their volatile history as throwaway objects.
A total of two pots are available to choose from, depending on your desired patina.
LEFT POT: This has a creamy coloured patina to it, with crazing all over which has discoloured to give it a sepia infused hue. There is a small chip to the top rim and the base rim is quite dark in colour, but otherwise this is a very stable pot.
RIGHT POT: More grey in colour, this also has large sections of crazing which have discoloured, creating a unique patina when mixed with the grey. There are two tight hairlines running down from the top rim towards the back of the pot. However, these are stable and they blend in with the crazing in this section.
