RESERVED

This large ironstone MARGARINE display advertising stand was originally used for displaying butter, margarine and other dairy products on the grocer’s shop counter. It measures 15 3/4” long x 11 3/4” across and 2” tall.  

The decorative advertising is printed in black.  This is a great antique one.

Parnell and Sons supplied grocers and butchers the slabs to offer a customer to purchase slices of margarine, cut off and sold.  A sturdy stand was meant for the heavy duty trade use and easily adaptable to a country kitchen or a contemporary cheese and wine shop.

The stand is in great condition.  Light discoloration to a few spots along the sides per photos..  A very heavy substantial piece.

The workmanship is similar to early plumbing fitting, was meant to be durable.  A great example, offered as is.
