Victorian White Ironstone Advertising Pot – Rare Large Two Pound Chubby James Keiller Dundee Marmalade
This is a listing for a scarce large Victorian two pound chubby James Keiller Dundee marmalade pot.
Made by the Maling factory in Newcastle in around 1900, these larger two pound “chubby” size advertising pots are harder to source.
The James Keiller company produced their advertising pots for their Dundee marmalade in a variety of sizes, and this is the rarer example of the chubbier, larger 2lb crock.
As most jars were discarded with common waste at the time, they often have discoloration and chips. However, this adds to their charm as highly decorative, weathered and chippy pieces.
This pot is a little chippy and weathered condition, reflecting its time spent underground. There is a chip to the top rim towards the back of the pot, as well as patches of lightly stained crazing. However, on the whole this is a nice clean example with a clear transfer print. Its chippy patina adds a lovely timeworn charm to the piece.
