Antique Victorian White Ironstone Advertising Pot – One POund Slim Sized James Keiller Dundee Marmalade
This is a listing for ONE antique Victorian slim one pound Dundee marmalade pot. A total of two are available for sale, in a choice of patinas.
These are nicer examples 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. Considering the history of these pieces, the condition of these two pots is good.
Commonly used to store kitchen utensils, they are also perfect for use as vases, plant pots or to store artists paintbrushes.
LEFT POT: This pot has a good clear transfer print to the front and is overall very clean. There are some patches of staining as is common when these pots have been underground for so long. There are two tight hairlines on the top rim of the pot, and a surface crack to the glaze underneath the transfer. However, the pot is very stable and is still highly usable.
RIGHT POT: In overall excellent condition with a nice clear transfer print, this pot has a lovely coffee coloured staining to it all over, which is mixed with some light crazing. The effect is lovely and this unique pagination makes it a wonderful home accessory. There is also a tight hairline on the right hand side of this pot but, again, the pot is nonetheless very stable.
