Victorian One Pound Chubby James Keiller Dundee Marmalade Advertising Pots
This is a listing for ONE antique Victorian one pound chubby Dundee marmalade pot. A total of two are available for sale.
These are nice examples of a the chubby 1lb 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 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. Both of these pots have suffered some minor damage, but they have a timeworn patina and are still very stable and perfectly usable.
Commonly used to store kitchen utensils, they are also perfect for use as vases, plant pots or to store artists paintbrushes.
The condition of both pots is fair condition for their age.
LEFT POT: This pot has a chippy, timeworn patina. It has lightly stained crazing all over, which is deeper in colour in the inside of the pot. Inside the pot there is a surface crack to the glaze but this is not a hairline. There is also a chip to the inside rim of the top of the pot.
RIGHT POT: Overall, this pot is in quite clean condition, with some patches of crazing. There are some small chips and wear to the base and three old hairline cracks running down the pot from the top, but these are all stable.
