Rare Antique Victorian White Ironstone English Advertising Pot – Seagers Potted Ham & Tongue in Green
This is a listing for ONE white ironstone potted meat pot, advertising Seager’s of Ipswich. A total of two are available to choose from, and both are rare examples of Victorian antique white ironstone advertising packaging pots with olive green coloured transfers.
Dating from the late 1800s/early 1900s, these are rare antique advertising white ironstone pots for potted meat. Both feature large and clear green transfer print advertising. The coloured pots are harder to source. They read:
“R SEAGER. POTTED HAM & TONGUE. IPSWICH”
Considered a throwaway item at the time it was produced, both these English advertising pots were salvaged from an old Victorian dump. And consequently they do bear some scars of their time underground.
LEFT POT: With a darker and more prominent transfer print, this advertising pot stands out. There is stained crazing all over the pot, which is more notable around the top rim, inside and on the underside of the pot.
RIGHT POT: While this pot is in overall cleaner condition, covered in mild crazing, this does have a small hairline on the back which is just over 1cm in length. However, it is tight and stable and doesn’t affect the integrity of the pot in any way. The transfer on the pot is a little paler on colour compared to the other pot, but it is still very clear.
