Antique Victorian Chubby One Pound Sized James Keiller Dundee Marmalade Advertising Pot
This is a listing for an antique Victorian one pound chubby Dundee marmalade pot. A total of two are available for sale.
This is a nice examples of a chubby 1lb James Keiller English advertising Dundee marmalade pot, 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 wider chubby 1lb version, which is a personal favourite.
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. This pot has suffered some minor damage, but has a timeworn patina and is still very stable and perfectly usable.
The pot has crazing all over which has discoloured and stained towards the bottom half of the pot. The top half is cleaner but has yellowish hues to it. There are also some minor knocks and chips to the top and base rims and a small hairline crack to the inside of the pot which is about 3cm in length. This doesn’t penetrate through the pot though.
Commonly used to store kitchen utensils, they are also perfect for use as vases, plant pots or to store artists paintbrushes.
