Antique Victorian Chippy Chubby One Pound James Keiller Dundee Marmalade Advertising Pot
This is a listing for an antique Victorian one pound chubby Dundee marmalade pot.
This is a nice example of a chubby 1lb James Keiller English advertising Dundee marmalade pot, dating from the turn of the 19th and 20th Centuries.
These white ironstone James Keiller Dundee marmalade jars were all handmade by Maling in the late Victorian period. The company produced their marmalade pots in a variety of sizes, and this is the wider chubby 1lb version, which is a personal favourite.
As most pots were discarded at the time, they often have spots of discoloration, minor hairline cracks, minor chips and varying shades of crazing. However, this adds to their charm as highly decorative pieces. This pot has suffered some damage, but has a unique timeworn patina and is still stable and usable.
The pot has crazing and dark staining all over in various shades. Despite this, the black under glaze transfer print logo is still very clear and legible. The result is a unique timeworn piece.
There is also a significant chip around the base of the pot, although it still stands flat, as well as three hairline cracks around the top rim. One of these is quite notable, going through the logo. However, the pot is still stable and these add to the chippiness of the pot.
Commonly used to store kitchen utensils, they are also perfect for use as vases, plant pots or to store artists paintbrushes.
