Rarer Sized Tall Victorian White Ironstone English Advertising Pots for J Sainsburys Potted Meat


1930s antique Meredith Drew glass shop counter advertising display jar

This is a listing for one of the harder to find antique tall white ironstone large J Sainsbury’s potted meat crocks, dating from the end of the 19th/early 20th Century.

These white ironstone jars are great examples of antique English advertising pots. In this larger size, they look wonderful on display as part of a kitchenalia or white ironstone collection, and are versatile to use in all rooms around the home.

At the time they were produced, these pots were discarded. These have been dig from an old Victorian dump, and therefore feature aged crazing and staining. However, they are all in excellent condition with clearly visible black transfer print logos, which is remarkable considering their volatile history as throwaway objects.

A total of six pots are available to choose, all in a mix of different patinas.

POT 1: The cleanest available, this pot has light crazing all over as well as some age spots. There is a tight and stable hairline on the side of the pot but the pot is nonetheless in excellent sturdy condition.

POT 2: This pot has mild crazing all over and a few minor nicks. This has stained more towards the top of the pot, which has a lovely grey tint to the glaze.

POT 3: The transfer on this pot has slightly faded. There is mild crazing and some patches of staining but overall this pot is quite clean.

POT 4: This is crazed all over which has stained to give the pot an overall light grey patina, with patches of stained crazing. Overall, this has a nice aged patina.

POT 5: This pot has crazed all over and is stained to give the pot a mix of grey patination, with some patches of stained crazing and some minor knocks to the base. Has a very clear transfer.

POT 6: This pot has crazing all over which has stained. Some of the dirt has also penetrated the glaze, leaving patches of grey which contrast against the white.
