Antique Victorian Chippy White Ironstone Advertising Pot – Slim 1lb James Keiller Dundee Marmalade
This is a listing for an antique Victorian slim one pound Dundee marmalade pot, in a chipped, weathered condition.
This is an example of the slimmer version of the 1lb James Keiller English advertising Dundee marmalade pot, dating from the turn of the 19th and 20th Centuries.
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, cracks, chips and varying shades of crazing. However, this adds to their charm as highly decorative pieces. This piece is typical of one which has been dug up from an old Victorian dump, bearing many scars from its time underground.
Commonly used to store kitchen utensils, they are also perfect for use as vases, plant pots or to store artists paintbrushes, or as simple decorative pieces.
Although in a stable condition, this pot has three notable cracks running down from the top rim. There are also two chips, one on the base rim and the other missing from the top of the pot at the back. However, the black advertising transfer on the front of this pot is very clear, and the overall staining on it is quite minimal, covered instead with light tea stained crazing.
