This ironstone Cheese display advertising stand dates mid 20th century. Originally used for displaying butter and other dairy products on the grocer’s shop counter. It measures 10” across and8” tall and included a domed cover.
The decorative advertising is printed in black and reads ‘FINEST ENGLISH CHEESES’.
The Dairy Supply Co supplied grocers and butchers the slabs to offer a customer to purchase slices of cheese, cut off and sold. Easily adaptable to a country kitchen or a contemporary cheese and wine shop.
The stand is in great condition. Very popular with the American market today although probably first made for the English trade.
The workmanship is similar to early plumbing fitting, was meant to be durable. A great example, offered as is.
