Genuine Early Victorian Black Transfer Printed 
Hair Cream Pot ~ Crock

Pale Blue Background Color

Bath, England c. 1850

This is a fabulous ointment pot or crock, circa 1850. It once contained a miraculous salve. This ointment was made and sold by the Finigan family, well known "snake oil" salesmen in Britain. The product was shear quackery. The company spent 30 years in trials to come up with this greasy hair wax made from who knows what. The pot and base are light blue, not able to capture the color in a photo. The crock was made in the Staffordshire district and is transfer printed in black. The name of the product is printed around the pot along with its wild representation. Stands a mere 2 1/2 " tall and 2 1/4 ” wide. It is thinly potted with a precision cut rim and crisp, finely applied transfer.

It is in great condition with two tiny chips inside the base rim. Clear transfers, one of the best ones you will find.
