A real old stone jar by Powell of Bristol with the name J.T. Morton Provision Merchant 107, 018 & 109 Leadenhall St London.

This is a great old stoneware ""advertising jar"" and quite hard to find these days.
It dates to the 1870s - 1880s.

It advertises the merchant shippers, J T Morton, Provision Merchants, originally of Aberdeen in Scotland in 1849, and from 1872, in London located at 107,108 &109 Leadhall Street just across the street from where Lloyds of London is now in the heart of the financial district.

Morton are listed initially as traders in flour, corn, and corks but their principal output was an exceptionally wide range of bottled, canned and preserved foods: fruits, pickles, salad oil, sauces, castor oil and, their best known product, jam. They also sold jelly, caramel, chocolate, custard, marsh mallow, liquorice, fondants, as well as Seidlitz powder (a digestion aid), magnesia and Epsom salts.

The jar is very solid, with a lid. There is a slight knock on one side of the rim. Measures 31cm high and the rim is approx 12cm wide.
