Pots for pastes/ cosmetics

Ceramic pot bases. The one on the left (missing lid) probably contained meat or fish paste, relish or shaving cream. The one on the right might have contained toothpaste or cold cream. Note how little it contained! This was a ploy by the seller, ensuring that the customer got hardly anything for their money. The weight of the pot could deceive the buyer into thinking that it contained more than it did.
