Rare G Rushbrooke 1920s Antique White Ironstone Ham Stand
This is a lovely rarer example of an antique early twentieth Century white ironstone ham stand, made by G. Rushbrooke of Smithfield.
Ceramic ham stands were often used in shops in the early twentieth Century. They would proudly display the meat provisions which were available for sale.
In a capstan or cotton reel shape, the central stem of these stands are hollow, with a flared base and top section. Featuring the iconic black and white “G.R” logo on its base, this is rarer than most Rushbrooke examples, also featuring the Royal Vitreous & B.B. marks in black transfer print.
The logo sat on the base of these stands. This stand has been used as the rim around the logo is worn and has an aged appearance. However, the overall condition of this ham stand is excellent. There is some blurring to the transfer although it is still very clear, a couple of firing marks and some minor crazing in a few spots. Overall, though, the quality of the ironstone on this piece really stands out.
