Lees Ointment
This page shows the  'Lees' ointment pot originating from Paisley
Peter Lees first appeared in the local Paisley directory in 1861 as a spirit merchant and in the following year he was listed as a china & crystal dealer, residing at the same address as that appearing 
on the Lee's Ointment pot. Little other information is available concerning this pot.

Arguably this is one of the most desirable pictorial ointment pots which carries a sepia print. 

The building depicted on the pot is that of Paisley Castle.
