Victorian Antique Slim One Pound James Keiller Dundee Marmalade Advertising Pot

1930s antique Meredith Drew glass shop counter advertising display jar

A lovely clean example of a slim one pound antique Victorian James Keiller Dundee marmalade pot, dating from the late 1800s/early 1900s.

These Dundee marmalade crocks were produced in a wide variety of different shapes and sizes for the popular Scottish brand, James Keiller. They were produced by Maling of Newcastle at the end of the nineteenth Century and beginning of the twentieth Century. Intended as throwaway items, they were often discarded with rubbish.

These one pound slim versions of the James Keiller were most commonly available, and they are popular amongst collectors today as great starter pieces. They look great on display, but also are a fantastic size to serve a multitude of purposes around the home, for example to hold cutlery in, for use as a vase and even as toothbrush holders.

This examples comes from an old Victorian dump yet is remarkably clean. It has light crazing all over, which gives it a nice timeworn, as well as some odd spots of discoloration. There are also some surface light surface knocks to the glaze where the transfer is located and around the rim. But there are no hairlines or structural issues.

Overall, it’s a great little antique advertising pot which can be used in most rooms around the home.
