***Antique Wemyss "Cherries" Preserve Pot, crazing and crackling present synomymous with this type of pottery. This is an early example with the "impressed" Wemyss backstamp on the underside of the pot.***
A rare Wemyss Ware Scottish Pottery preserve pot manufacted circa around 1890, the pot measuring five inches in height (from base to the tip of finial on the lid).
Due to the fact that the Wemyss pottery produced table ware on a large scale, many example one will tend to find will have the presence of crazing and this example no less, the pottery of the jar is stained in the interior and there is the aforementioned crazing present all over the pot.
Some restoration work is evident and this appears to have been carried out in the past, probably decades ago.
The places where you will find restoration is around the lid in a couple of places and on the hand painted cherries on the main body of the jar. Also one will add that there are minor chips to the underside base (which can be clearly seen in the frames of reference).
Aside from that, this is a nice piece and as the Wemyss market remains bouyant, this will be a great addition to your collect. Please click here to ask a question
