Victorian White Ironstone Large 2 Pound James Keiller Dundee Marmalade Advertising Pot
This is a listing for one 2lb white ironstone James Keiller Dundee marmalade advertising pot, dating from the late Victorian period. Three are available in total.
These white ironstone James Keiller marmalade pots were all handmade by Maling of Newcastle in the late Victorian period. The company produced their marmalade pots in a variety of sizes, and these are examples of the large two pound pot.
These pots feature a large black transfer print advertising James Keiller’s Dundee Marmalade, which has won numerous awards at international exhibitions.
As most jars were discarded with common waste at the time, they often have spots of discoloration, minor hairlines and chips. However, this adds to their charm as highly decorative pieces. Despite coming from a dig, all three pots are in overall clean condition and are very solid pieces.
LEFT-HAND POT: This pot suffered a chip to its rim during the production process. As these pots were considered disposable items, it didn’t warrant the pot being discarded so it was glazed over. This pot also has patches of grey discoloration and some fading to the transfer print. There is also a very small hairline on the lip of this pot, although it is structurally very sound. £38.
MIDDLE POT: Sold.
RIGHT-HAND POT: Sold.
