Victorian White Ironstone Advertising Pot – Tall Slim Two Pound James Keiller Dundee Marmalade
This is a listing for ONE antique Victorian tall slim two pound Dundee marmalade pot. A total of two are available for sale.
These are excellent examples of a the slimmer version of the 2lb James Keiller English advertising Dundee marmalade pots, dating from the turn of the Century.
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 taller slimmer 2 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 excellent.
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 grease marks to the inside of the pot and it also has some wear and chips to the base rim, although these aren’t visible when the pot is standing up. The base rim of the pot has some unglazed patches which would have happened during the firing process.
RIGHT POT: In overall excellent clean condition with a nice clear transfer print, this pot has some odd age spots and wear to the base rim. There is also a small firing fault on the transfer, with one of the letters slightly raised and blurred.
