Victorian Prattware bear’s grease pot “Alas poor bruin”
A very rare and authentic 19th Century Pot Lid & Base produced by the Pratts Factory in England and based on an original watercolor entitled “Alas poor bruin” . The engraving that can be seen on the pot lid shows a little bear which mean the pot was meant to sell Bear’s grease! Bear’s grease was a supposed hair loss treatment for men…
Although the condition of the pot is quite poor…its patina and the fact that it is complete makes it a very special collectable item!
the pot measures 7.4cm (2.9″) diameter x 4cm (1.6″) high
