Rare Size and Excellent

Genuine Victorian Transfer Printed

CURE ALL Pot Crock

Poor Man's Friend

For the cure of just about Everything

Prepared only by Beach & Barnicott

England c. 1880

This is a fabulous little transferware ointment pot or crock, circa 1880, was salvaged from a Victorian dump tip in England. It once contained a secret preparation developed by Doctor Roberts of Bridgeport. Advertised as the cure for whatever else ails you! Inexpensive for the " Poor Man ", the snake oil ingredients consisted of lard and beeswax mixed with awful mercury and lead with a dusting of fresh herbs.

Rare Size. The tiny crock stands a mere 1 1/2 " tall and 1 7/8 " wide. It is nicely potted with a precision cut rim and a crisp, finely applied transfer. It is in overall remarkable condition. A very aged patina for the rustic natural look.
