Genuine Victorian Transfer Printed
EYE OINTMENT Pot ~ Crock
England c. 1880
This is a fabulous tiny little transferware ointment pot or crock, circa 1880. It once contained a miraculous salve. This ointment was made and sold by Chemists, well known "snake oil" salesmen in Britain. The product was shear quackery.
The crock was made in the Staffordshire district and is transfer printed in black. The name of the product is printed around the pot. The tiny crock stands a mere 1 1/4 " tall and 1 7/8” wide. It is thinly potted with a precision cut rim and crisp, finely applied transfer.
It is in good condition with correct base. A small chip off the side of the top.
