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 .
