Two antique Edwardian Coracle Brand Picnic Pots - Butter & Preserve

Two antique Edwardian Coracle Brand Picnic Pots - Butter & Preserve

An original pair of Edwardian white ironstone picnic butter & preserve pots. One lid is decorated across the top with arched 'Butter' black transfer lettering, with the other bearing 'Preserve'. Both the lids and the bases have two chamfered grooves for the leather straps to sit in to secure the lids in place. Both pots come with their original leather straps, which are incredibly hard to find intact.
The foot of each pot is marked with the wonderful pictorial Coracle mark, a brand name of G.W. Scott and Sons. A fine wickerwork, basketry and luxury leather goods manufacturer, the company is best known for their 'Coracle' brand fitted luncheon and tea baskets, which were popular across Europe throughout the Victorian and Edwardian eras.


The preserve pot is in great antique condition with its original leather strap. 
The butter pot is also in great antique condition with its original strap but has one very tiny fleabite on the edge of the pot and on the edge of the lid. 
Age related glaze crazing is present. 


Approximate dimensions:
7cm tall
