Antique French Early 20th Century Ironstone Advertising Pot – Roger & Gallet Creme de Savon

antique french early 20th century white ironstone roger gallet creme savon advertising pot

This is a listing for a rarely seen antique French white ironstone advertising pot for Roger & Gallet’s Crème de Savon, dating from the early 20th Century.

This is a beautiful example of a French ironstone advertising pot, dating from around 1900. Like all French ironstone pots, it features beautiful and intricate imagery and typography. The brand and product information features on both sides in subtle sage green colouring. A beautiful pattern, with scrolling, borders and foliage links them together. The lid of the pot is no less detailed, with the monogrammed initials for Roger & Gallet taking centre stage.

Originally, this pot was used for shaving cream but these are now delightful items to have displayed around the home.

Considering the age of this piece, it is in very good overall condition with clear transfers still. There is some light chipping to the top rim and the underside of the lid, plus a small amount of crazing near the top rim. But these flaws aren’t overly notable, and it’s rare to find these pots, especially with their original lids.

Height, 7cm; Diameter, 8.5cm
