Genuine Victorian Transfer Printed


Virol Quack Medicine

for the cure of a hundred and one Ailments

England

c. 1880

This is a fabulous transferware pot or crock, circa 1880, salvaged from a Victorian tip in England. It once contained Virol, a preparation of Bone-Marrow and other snake oil additives. Quack medicine? Some swear that it helps as a sleep aid, cure the common cold, disfuntions of all types.
For the patient who is always "below par"

For the patient who stays obstinately in the convalescent stage, for neurasthenic, the dyspeptic, for the hundred and one ills due to starved nerves and under-nourishment.

The crock stands 3 1/4 " tall and 2 1/4 " wide. It is potted with a precision cut rim and applied under glaze transfer. It is in great condition with no issues.

This diminutive medical nutritional piece is wildly amusing, a throwback to a much simpler and goofier time in the world of medicine. The piece will make a great addition to any collection of transfer printed advertising wares or quack medicines .
