This is a listing for an antique Victorian slim one pound Dundee marmalade pot.
This is a nice example of the slimmer version of the 1lb James Keiller English advertising Dundee marmalade pots, 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 slimmer 1 pound version.
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.

There is a chip to the base of the pot on its side, and some patches of stained crazing. However, these blemishes add to its charm as a timeworn piece. And there are no cracks.
