Rare Antique Victorian Miniature James Keiller Dundee Marmalade Advertising Pot

antique white ironstone victorian advertising pots rare miniature james keiller dundee marmalade

This is a listing for ONE rare miniature James Keiller Dundee marmalade antique advertising pot, dating from the late Victorian period at the end of the 1800s/early 1900s. Only the left hand pot is still available for sale.

These ironstone James Keiller marmalade pots were all handmade by Maling of Newcastle in the late 1800s and early 1900s. Famed for its popular brand of marmalade, the James Keiller company produced their marmalade pots in a variety of sizes, and these are the more scarce examples of the miniature sized marmalade pot. Also known as a ‘Train Size’, as they were often used by passengers in restaurants when travelling. Pots of these size are getting harder and harder to find.

This pot features exactly the same black transfer print advertising James Keiller’s Dundee Marmalade, which has won numerous awards at international exhibitions, only in miniature format.

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.

The pot on the left has suffered some damage in its history. There is a fine crack at the front of the pot as well as a more notable crack on one side and a small chip at the top of this. However, it is otherwise a very attractive example with light crazing all over and some small patches of discolouration.

Height, 5.5cm; Width, 4cm
