What's for sale?

This is a large, stoneware, Scottish cream pot from the early 20th century. Pots like these were produced in large numbers throughout Britain, and were branded differently for each dairy.

This is from the Dunragit Creamery in Wigtownshire, South West Scotland. The creamery was opened in 1882, bought by Nestlé in the 1940s and finally closed in the 1960s.

Cream pots were mass-produced and roughly made, so will generally have faults, rough patches and imperfect printing. They were intended to be used and thrown away, so it's likely that most of those around today have been rescued from old rubbish tips.
