A turn of the century 'glamour' pot, made of white ironstone pottery and marked on the front face with an under-glaze blue advertising transfer for Hunter - Penrose, London.
Produced in the cylinder form with a tie-string notched rim, it would have been filled with beautifying ointment for late Victorian/Edwardian women and stage actors.
A rare early transfer variant for Hunter-Penrose, later pots dating from around 1910 show a simplified 'P' roundel with the typography arching around it, as opposed to this more intricate and scarcely seen bannered print.
10.8cm Tall (4-1/4")
6.4cm Pot diameter (2-1/2")
Some crazing and rusty staining inside and out, but no chips or cracks and good otherwise.
