Antique Victorian White Ironstone English Advertising Pot – One Pound Chubby Frank Cooper, Oxford
;;This is a listing for one standard sized Victorian one pound chubby Frank Cooper marmalade advertising pot.
Made by the Maling factory in Newcastle around 1900, this 1 pound “chubby” size English advertising pot is a versatile and popular crock, which is perfect for a variety of uses around the modern home. The Frank Cooper company produced their advertising pots for Seville marmalade in a variety of sizes, and this is the chubbier, standard sized 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.
This example is crazed with the perfect patina which has stained in places, yet still with a lovely clear transfer on the front. There are no chips. There is a hairline crack at the top of the jar. This isn’t obvious as it ties in with the crazing but is nonetheless there, so care is advised when handling the pot.
Please check my other listings for a variety of other antique advertising pots, which make excellent decorative pieces around the home.
