Potted History

Posted on Oct 8, 2013 by

The Victorian Wall is a charming online emporium and shopping experience. Peruse their gallery of beautifully styled still life pictures, and click on any object that appeals to reveal the product information. Browsing through their collection of vintage treasures, we found these gorgeous Victorian porcelain pot lids. Each around 7cm in diameter and just over 1cm deep, they feature black text advertising their former contents, such as tooth paste. Only recently unearthed on a Victorian waste site, they all show signs of wear and some crazing to the porcelain, which frankly only adds to their appeal. Each has a hook on the reverse, so that it can be easily hung. They’ll make a lovely feature on any bathroom wall.

This Victorian porcelain lid is from a pot of Boots the Chemist's cold cream. It has fine crazing to the porcelain and patches of iron staining, which only add to its character

We also recently found this iron glove maker’s mould on The Vintage Wall – another striking industrial piece to hang on the wall of your warehouse home and one that we’re certain will prove a great talking point with guests!
