Antique 1920s Large Plain White Ironstone Ham Stand Featuring Advertising for Glenhurst Equipment Shop Outfitters
A wonderful example of white Ironstone ware at its finest, in excellent condition.
This antique Ironstone ham stand dates from the 1920s. Featuring a wonderfully clear black transfer print advertising logo for “Glenhurst Equipment”, who were shop outfitters, this is a great example of antique English advertising ware.
Ceramic ham stands were commonly used in shops in the early part of the twentieth Century. They were used to display the meats provision shops had available for sale. The ham bone would be placed into the hole in the middle of the stand, from which ham could be freshly cut to order for customers.
It is a heavy and quality antique piece, which shows off the quality of ironstone. It is perfect for a modern kitchen, and really comes into its own used as a display piece during family celebrations, Easter or Christmas.
This piece is in excellent condition with no damage. The only signs of age are some discoloration and wear to the base rim which is where the advertising logo is located and is unglazed. There are also some patches of light staining.
