Rare Large 3 Pound White Ironstone James Keiller Dundee Marmalade Advertising Pot – Chippy & Weathered
A nice example of the rare extra large three pound antique advertising pot for James Keiller Dundee Marmalade, with a fabulous worn patina.
These 3 pound versions of the James Keiller Dundee Marmalade advertising crocks are increasingly hard to find, and are highly desired amongst collectors. That’s because they look great and are a fantastic large size which makes them perfect for use around the home, as well as on display. They are very useful as kitchen storage jars and look beautiful used as vases.
These pots were produced by Maling of Newcastle at the end of the nineteenth Century and early part of the twentieth Century. They were intended to be throwaway items and were often discarded with rubbish.
This example has come from an old Victorian dump, and therefore has suffered some damage in the form of a hairline crack on the right hand side of the pot which extends half way down the pot. This is stable but can be felt. As a result of its time under ground, the glaze has also developed a wonderful timeworn patina, with stained crazing in varying shades all over the piece. The transfer remains very clear and visible.
Overall, though, this pot is a lovely example with the perfect patina for those who like an aged and weathered look in their collectable ironstone pieces.
