Antique Mason's Ironstone Cheese Dish Advertising Transferware Made In England
Antique Mason's Ironstone Cheese Dish Advertising Transferware Made In England. Condition is Used.
Stunning RARE antique Mason's Ironstone transferware advertising cheese dish. This dish was created as an advertising piece for Mason's ironstone dishware featuring transferware designs. The word "cheese" is placed on both sides of the cover and is the "Transferware" aspect of the dish. The dish is in excellent condition, despite some discoloration on the base of the top color. The surface of the cover also shows a cracking texture. I'm uncertain if this is intentional, or if it was an occurrence from the heating, curing and cooling during manufacturing.
The bottom of the plate is stamped "Mason's Patent Ironstone Made in England 78" within the image of the manufacturers mark.
The total height of the dish is approximately 4 1/2". The plate is approximately 9" x 7 1/4". The base of the cover measures just shy of approximately 5" x 7".
This is an extraordinary example of antique advertising.
