Set of two antique plain white ironstone picnic pots

Set of two antique plain white ironstone picnic pots

A charming little pair of early 20thC butter or preserve pots, designed to be included in a picnic hamper with fitted lids that are fastened shut with buckled leather straps. Made of white ironstone pottery with a plain white glaze, they are unusual to find without 'butter' or 'preserves' on the face in black transfer.


Approximate dimensions:

7cm diameter

7cm tall


Condition: Both the pots are in very good antique condition and very usable. The rim of the lid on the left pot has three fine hairlines, but these are old and fairly insignificant so do not detract. The right pot has a manufacturing flaw on the rim of the lid, but this occurred in production and is overglazed so is original and not damaged. The leather straps are very stiff but still intact.
