~Here is some information I found online about James Keiller & Son DUNDEE Marmalade:~ "Est. 1797. Legend has it that in the 18th century a Spanish ship took refuge from a raging storm in the sheltered harbour of Dundee. Its cargo included Seville oranges which were purchased on speculation by a Dundee grocer called James Keiller. It was Mrs. Keiller who saw the potential of these bitter Spanish oranges. She boiled the oranges with sugar and the resulting product was the delicious preserve now known as Dundee Orange Marmalade. Although her recipe has changed a little since the 18th century, the traditions of using the finest ingredients are still used to this day and the distinctive white pot is known worldwide as the Keiller symbol of quality. No preservatives. No added color. Made in England. "
This is crock jar/pot can be used as a storage jar like it was originally used or can be "upcycled" into a vase, pen/pencil holder, or in the kitchen to hold utensils. Use your imagination and the possibilities for its reuse are endless:)
