Advert for Ewart & Son, chimney pot manufacturers
This is an advertisement for Ewat and Sons, chimney pot manufacturers. The Victorian house building boom meant that there was a demand for chimney pots and other building materials, this demand was met by many different manufacturers across the country. It is interesting to note that all these different companies used the same names for their products. Names were usually based on the geometry of the pot like the ‘Square Based Octagon’ and the ‘Spiked Square’. The pots advertised here however are the ‘Prince’ and the ‘Empress’, obviously a royal theme.
