Another very pretty Victorian pictorial cream pot bearing the inscription 'PURE FRESH CREAM FROM THE WIGTOWNSHIRE CREAMERY Co STRANRAER'. NOW SOLD
Another very pretty Victorian pictorial cream pot bearing the inscription 'PURE FRESH CREAM FROM THE WIGTOWNSHIRE CREAMERY Co STRANRAER'. This sepia print pot is rarer and so more collectable than the black print you may have seen here before. The image features a young milk maid holding a bucket and stool amidst a landscape.
These pictorial pots are highly collectable and this one is a fine example. The print is not as fine as some but on the whole the pot is excellent condition and the ornate text makes it particularly appealling.
The Dunragit Creamery, opened in 1882, merged with the Valleyfield Dairy Company in 1891 to form the United Creameries Company. About 300 people were employed at the creamery and a special workers' train operated between Stranraer and Dunragit in the morning and evening. The creamery closed in 1989.
