This listing is for (1) Antique English Advertising Lidded Pot w/Base c 1890:
The Teeth and Gums
Breidenbach & Co.
Perfumers & Distillers of Wood Violet
to the Queen
157B. New Bond Street
Tooth Pastes were by far the most popular commodity sold in pots with printed lids. It is thought that there are 998 different printed lids, now all are very scarce, many rare, this one falls in the rare category.
Please consider the images as the best part of my description.
Most pots have some level of crazing, may have spots of discoloration, light hairline cracks and minor chips and fleabites that should be considered patina, additions to character and do not detract from its display value. These are expected due to age, use and let’s not forget they were often buried for decades before being dug up and rescued.
I offer substantial savings in shipping costs when multiple items are combined into one package. I work hard to find the most economical shipping options available by checking multiple discount carriers.
I will credit any overpayment of postage charged to you after finding the best shipping option. I check both ParcelMonkey.com and Shipgooder.com for the most economical delivery to save you shipping dollars. These companies negotiate better rates with USPS, Fed Ex and UPS than individuals can on their own.
