1920s Antique Mason’s Ironstone Butchers Display Ham Stand
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.
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. There is a very small firing mark on the main column and the base rim has a slightly different shade of colour due to the fact that it is unglazed. However, this doesn”t stand out and the stand could be used this way up.
