VICTORIAN AESTHETIC ERA

BLACK TRANSFERWARE POT LID

BEARS GREASE

James Atkinson ~ London
Made in the Staffordshire Region of England
c. 1885

This Victorian 2 1/2 " wide x 1 3/4 " tall covered ceramic earthenware container was made during Victorian times and probably contained a salve made of bear's grease fat mixed with magical herbs. Quite the popular treatment to slick the hair down in Victorian times.
Rare to find pot lid for the collector.

The piece is in great condition save for a bit of discoloration.
