Antique Victorian White Ironstone Potted Meat Jar For G.W. Plumtree

antique edwardian 1920s smiths crisps shop display glass jar counter

An antique white ironstone pot for G.W. Plumtree Southport potted meats, dating from the early 1900s, in mint condition.

This is a lovely example of late Victorian/early twentieth Century Edwardian shop advertising in the form of a white ironstone pot for G.W. Plumtree, based in Southport. It was used to sell the manufacturer’s potted meats.

The standard sized pot features a small black transfer print which is in good condition. It has some blurring to the top of the transfer, however it is still clear and legible, reading:

“G.W. Plumtree
Manufacturer of Home Potted Meats
13 Railway St

As with all vintage and antique items, this does show some minor signs of its age and use, with some firing nibbles and some crazing to the glaze on the base of the pot. Other than that, though, this ironstone pot is in excellent condition.

Height, 4cm; Width, 8.5cm
