Genuine Early Victorian Black Transfer Printed 
Hair Cream Pot ~ Crock
Leamington Spa, England c. 1860
This is a fabulous ointment pot or crock, circa 1860. It once contained a miraculous salve. This ointment was made and sold by the Williams family, well known "snake oil" family 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 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 1 3/4 inches tall and 3 inches wide. It is thinly potted with a precision cut rim and crisp, finely applied transfer.
It is in great condition. The base and lid are a married set.
