1 in stock

This is a listing for one (1) extremely rare early Real Gorgona Anchovy Paste So highly approved of for Toast Sandwiches & c pot.  The pot has some slight chipping on the upper rim as well as random splotches of darker discoloration throughout.  Very heavy pot.  The lid has numerous chips.   While this pot is generic as far as the brand, it was most likely made by John Burgess who sold imported luxury foods like anchovies that were caught off the western coast of Italy.  The coat of arms on the pot looks very similar to the ones he put on his anchovy paste lids.  Great addition to your Antique English Advertising Pot collection.

This ancient pot was curated during my travels to England’s Famous Antique Markets while visiting my daughter and her family in London.

Please consider the images as the best part of my description.  The lid is in good condition with some staining along the inner and outer rim along with a chip and a couple hairline cracks. The base is in great condition with two very small chips on the inner rim. Displays well.

Most pots have some level of crazing, may have spots of discoloration, light hairline cracks and minor chips and fleabites that should be considered 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 over payment of postage charged to you after finding the best shipping option. I check both and 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.
