Genuine Victorian Transfer Printed Pot



73 Princes Street London England
c. 1880

This is a fabulous black transferware ointment pot or crock, circa 1880.  It once contained Camphor laced Ointment advertised as the cure for many an ailment!  Probably contained a salve made of bear's grease fat mixed with magical herbs.

The crock stands 1 3/8 " tall and 2 3/8” wide. It is well potted and without any chips or cracks.  The base is a marriage but fits quite nicely.

The piece will make a great addition to any collection of transfer printed advertising wares or quack medicines .
