This is a listing for one (1) James Keiller Dundee 3# (3 pound) Marmalade Pot c. 1879. You will receive the actual pot pictured. This rare pot is in overall excellent solid condition with one hairline crack as pictured on the right side. Overall crazing making this a beautiful find! The is a manufacturing ripple in the transfer and a very small firing hole near the base also on the side of the pot not visible when displaying. Please see all pictures as this is the exact pot you will receive.
This pot has survived over 100 years….first as packaging for the famous DUNDEE Marmalade, when empty thrown away, buried and then dug up, incredibly found intact and in one piece. I love these large size Keillers, so versatile to hold a large dish soap paint brushes, scissors, flowers, pens.
Each of these charming pots were hand made between 1860 and 1920 to store prize winning Marmalade. This particular size is very scarce, my English sources save these awesome both digging up these rare wonderful pieces curated from my travels to England while visiting my daughter and her family in London.
All pots have their own age related characteristics. Most have visual crazing , spots of discoloration, hairline cracks and minor chips and fleabits that only add to its character and do not detract from its display value. These are expected due to age and use as they were often buried for decades and now are being dug up and rescued.
Perfect to store pens, flatware, paintbrushes, candles, cotton balls, or just to admire as one of a kind decor.
I offer substantial savings in shipping costs when multiple items are combined into one package. I will credit any overpayment of postage charged to you after finding the best shipping option.
