Rare FABLES Aesthetic Brown Transfer Cheese Keep 1886
AESTHETIC MOVEMENT BROWN POLYCHROME TRANSFERWARE CHEESE KEEP
Burgess and Leigh ~ Staffordshire England 1891
This very rare Victorian 10 1/2 " long x 7 1/2 " wide x 6 " tall cheese stand is transfer printed in dark brown. Multi-colored polychrome painting in shades of peach, aqua, red, golden yellow, primrose pink, green and brown. A fantastic color combination. Vent holes along the top to let the cheese breathe.
The pattern features Aesops Fables along with some very quirky mice. The transfers are works of Victorian art.
Condition is good save for 2 chips along the outside edges lost in the transfer designs. This pattern are near impossible to find especially in this unique form. Fabulous for use or display.
