Carlton Ware Small Jaffa Preserve Pot with Cover & Stand - 1920s
One of the ever popular Preserve Pots from Carlton Ware.
This is a Small Jaffa Orange Preserve Pot - shaped, not unreasonably, as a textured orange with a yellow flower finial set on several green leaves.
This item is particularly hard to find as not only is the Cover in perfect condition, it comes complete with the Stand to match. This latter item is often lost or broken so this one is a welcome change. Interestingly, I have also the larger version in identical condition available currently.
The Stand has a diameter of 4.75 inches (12 cms) and has a lightish green ground.
The Jaffa Pot is 4 inches (10 cms) tall.
It is in excellent condition throughout but there is evidence of crazing to the Stand only..
It has the Carlton Ware script backstamp on both pieces and is shape 331, introduced around 1926.
