This is an old handmade jam pot made by Moira in England.
WIKI SAYS: Moira pottery works, founded in 1922, was known for its utilitarian stoneware crocks for marmalade and inexpensive pitchers and other kitchen wares, sometimes applied with transfer-printed advertising reproducing quaint turn-of-the-century woodcuts. The pottery works was situated approximately 5 mi (8 km) from Burton-on-Trent, Staffordshire, although the village of Moira is just over the border in Leicestershire. It closed in 1972.
Condition is great all around, clean and dispalys beautifully in a country kitchen. It was found in Totnes, Devon. It has its original thick chunky old cork. Looks great up on a shelf. It has the typical stoneware firing imperfections, but no cracks or repairs.
Size: 4 inches in diameter, 5 inches tall with handle up
