Cooper’s Marmalade

Cooper’s Oxford Marmalade was ‘invented’ by Sarah Cooper in 1874. It proved popular and became the main item produced by Frank Cooper in Oxford. It was sold in very lovely stoneware jars and we have one.


We can see the marmalade is claimed as ‘homemade’ and had a royal appointment badge.

I can’t date this jar. I guess at early 20th century but that is, as stated, a guess. If you know better then let me know.

The jar maker has impressed his name in the base.


The manufacturer was Maling of Newcastle.

Any further information will be gratefully received.

Please note that I do not buy or sell items like this. They just form part of my personal history.
