Vintage Kleen Kitchen Ware Storage Jar, 2 Pint. 1940s Vintage Green And White Storage Jar. Rare And Large Size. 1940s Vintage Kitchen Ware

Description ~

I love vintage storage jars, they are things of beauty in their own right and still immensely useful! This 1940s large storage jar is by renowned English pottery Sadler, under their kitchen ware brand 'Kleen Kitchen Ware'. It is from their colourful but utilitarian and stylish green and white range, which has proved unwaveringly popular ever since they first started producing it! It is now widely collected and sought after, and I think this is unsurprising, due to it simple and stylish look and its ease for cleaning. I own and use several pieces in my own kitchen, I'm love collecting and using it.

The Kleen Kitchen Ware mark is stamped underneath the jar, along with 'Made In England' and the jar's volume - 2 pints. It is a very special item indeed and I was delighted to find it! The jar overall is a white/cream shade, with a raised bright green concentric circle pattern and matching lid, which is original to this jar. It is extremely attractive, still very useable and lovely practical size - neither too large nor too small. It is deep enough to keep a good quantity of anything you may like inside, from flour, to tea, sugar, coffee, dried fruit, or indeed for storing whatever you would like.

This is a beautiful vintage item in its own right, and would look fabulous on a rustic shelf in a retro or vintage kitchen. You may already collect Kleen Kitchen Ware and be looking to your add to your collection, or you may be wanting to add a touch of vintage to your kitchen with something that is immensely stylish and usable, in which case, this jar is perfect.

If you are trying to reduce your use of plastic and buy a lot of products loose, such as dried fruit, nuts or even cereals like oats, then this jar will go a significant way to helping you live plastic free! And as its earthenware and very good quality, its has years of live left in it yet!

Condition ~

In very good vintage condition. The lid drops snugly onto the circular rim. Inside is clean and undamaged, as can be seen from the photos. The pattern is in lovely condition. The Kleen Kitchen Ware mark can clearly be seen underneath. There is overall crazing to the thick glaze, but this is perfectly commensurate with age and use and perfectly normal for pieces from this era, due to their thick glazes. It does not affect soundness or usability. As can be seen in photos 8 & 9, there is a small area of hairline cracks underneath the lid and two very small chips to the underside of the jar's outer rim. None of these small points affect soundness or usability and are minor - they appear to have occurred a very long time ago and have not affected the soundness of the jar. They are also hard to spot (and the cracks under the lid cannot be seen at all unless completely turned over), and so not negatively affect the lovely overall appearance of this jar. Its still looks brilliant for displaying. Please remember this is a vintage item and not in brand new mint condition, any further points there may be are minor and commensurate with age and use. I always photograph my items in natural light, so that my photos are as accurate as possible. The exact colours of the jar may vary depending on your screen settings. Any further wear or minor blemishes are commensurate with age and use. This is a very rare and special vintage storage jar indeed. Please just ask for further photos.
