End of day preserve pot

This is a lovely colourful piece for your breakfast or tea table. It is a lidded preserve pot with saucer in a beautiful mottled colour.

The colour comes from the fact that at the end of the day the manufacturer would use up all the bits of plastic left over from the day's work, and so the colours always vary as it depended on the amounts of the various different colours that were available. There is no maker's name only Made in England on the underside of the saucer.

Very stylish design, probably from the 1940's or 50's. There is a slot in the lid for the spoon to go through and a handy knob on the top. The glass pot is ribbed, there are a few air bubbles in the glass and the joints in the mould are visible.

A great item of kitchenalia in very good condition.
