Rare Victorian White Ironstone English Advertising Pot – Allen & Hanbury’s Bynol Malt & Oil Treatment
This is a listing for a Victorian white ironstone English advertising pot for Allen & Hanbury’s Malt & Oil Bynol restorative treatment.
Dating from around 1900, these earlier versions of the Bynol pots are more difficult to source.
A preparation of malt extract and cod liver oil, the pot gives an indication of the benefits of taking this supplement to help digestion and make you “…less liable to Winter Cough and Cold than those who neglect the use of such Fat-forming and Heat-producing elements of diet as this preparation affords”.
The pot is a wonderful example of Victorian typography, with the different sections all featuring different styles of typography.
As most jars were discarded with common waste at the time, and have been more recently been dug up from Victorian dumping grounds, they often have discoloration and chips. However, this adds to their charm as highly decorative, weathered and chippy pieces.
This pot is in excellent overall good condition, with no cracks. The text is very clear and visible, but the whole piece has a weathered and chippy look to it, with patches of stained crazing and two small chips to the base rim.
