1920s White Ironstone Mason’s Ham Stand

1930s antique Meredith Drew glass shop counter advertising display jar

A wonderful example of white ironstone ware at its finest, in mint condition.

This antique Mason’s Ironstone ham stand dates from the 1920s. It is complete with the Mason’s black transfer print mark on its base. As it is in such good condition, it would be fine to stand it up this way to show the mark off on display. It is the shorter version, at around half the height of more standard ham stands

The mark reads: “Mason’s Ironstone Made in England Permanent Detergent Proof Decoration”.

Ceramic ham stands were commonly used in shops in the early part of the twentieth Century. They were used to display the meats and hams that provision and grocers shops had available for sale.

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 minor age marks on the top rim of the base (which cannot be seen if this is displayed upside down, with the Mason’s mark on show).

Height 11cm; Width 17cm
