In its centenary year of 1862 the Maling factory was producing 90 per cent of the jam jars used in England and Scotland. The most familiar items are probably the white pottery jars with a transfer-printed trade label, of the type still sometimes used for Keiller's and Frank Cooper's marmalade, and the blue and white jars made specially for Rington's tea. This book traces the development of the firm and describes the main production processes used. There are many illustrations of Tyneside wares and the identification marks employed by manufacturers.
