Large Victorian White Ironstone English Advertising Pot – Two Pound Chubby Frank Cooper Oxford Seville Marmalade
This is a listing for ONE large Victorian two pound chubby Frank Cooper marmalade pot.
Made by the Maling factory in Newcastle in around 1900, these larger two pound “chubby” size English advertising pots are harder to source.
The Frank Cooper company produced their advertising pots for Seville marmalade in a variety of sizes, and this is the more scarce 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.
All these pots are in excellent overall condition with a range of mellow patinas available to suit your individual style.
LEFT POT: In excellent condition, this has a very light tea stained colouring to it. There is crazing all over but this is more notable around the top rim and inside the pot. The advertising transfer is still very clear.
MIDDLE POT: Again, in excellent overall condition, this pot has more notably coffee coloured staining on the top half of the pot. There is some mild fading to the transfer but it is still very clear. There is a surface crack to the glaze above the label but this does not penetrate through the pot.
RIGHT POT: Again, in excellent order, this has light coffee coloured crazing and staining all over. The label is still clear and legible. There is a surface crack to the glaze above the label but this does not penetrate through the pot.
