Early 20th Century Masons Ironstone Cheese Dish & Cover

antique edwardian 1920s smiths crisps shop display glass jar counter

This is a super example of the lidded white ironstone lidded “CHEESE” dish and stand. Carrying a black transfer print Mason’s mark on its base, this piece dates from the early to mid twentieth Century.

In plain white ironstone style, the word “CHEESE” is featured in large script writing on both sides of the lid in black transfer print.

These white ironstone labelled pieces have become extremely popular and are becoming harder to find. This version is in excellent condition, with no cracks or chips. There are a few off spots of crazing to the glaze, and the black “CHEESE” transfer has had its surface lightly scratched in places although this is only notable on close inspection and is still a very crisp and clear transfer. There are also a couple of odd firing marks in places.

This is a great item which would is wonderful as part of a table centrepiece when entertaining, and it is also looks great on display when not in use.

Height, 11.5cm; Width, 23.5cm; Depth, 18.5cm.  The lid: 17.5cm wide; 12.5cm deep.
