Antique,ceramic,chemist's Pharmacy Toothpaste Jar, Crock Pot Lid For Sale
You are offerding on an antique, ceramic, under-glaze transferred, toothpaste container or "pot lid" as they are known. The lid dates to between 1900-1905, and is different from the familiar version of this lid in that it is the company's "White Cherry" version. By this date (1900) the company had changed names to the 3-generational "Maw, Son & sons". The lid measures just under 2 3/4" in diameter. It shows the customary glaze crazing which attests to it's approx. 110 years of age. The lid has an edge impact "ding", a smallish inner flange chip and an inner flange "fill"....all clearly shown in the pics. (pics 4-7) The face-transfer is unaffected and the lid is structurally sound. It has been fitted with a good condition base section which is also advertise-transferred, but please note this base is for another chemist and is therefore a stand-in for this lid, but I must say, it looks really good when matched with this lid, and displays nicely! The base is also antique, and from the same time period. It is in good condition. Nice little "double-antique" container to display at some strategic place in your home.FOR VIEWERS WHO MAY NOT BE FAMILIAR WITH THESE
