Antique Faux Bois Hobnail Cheese Dish Dome English Advertising Transferware
This product is unavailable
Here's an unusally wonderful example of advertising pieces that are so collectable now. This antique, early 20th Century cheese dish is oval shaped (they are usually rectangular or round) with a hobnail pattern over the entire dome and finial. On the front and indentation in the dome is deocarated with a faux bois (false wood) label with reads CHEESE in bold, black letters. Beautiful!
Any questions please email me. Thank you.
H: 4 5/8" W: 6 3/4" D: 5 1/2"
Condition: No chips or cracks, some scuffs around the under rim of the dome and alongside the under rim of the plate. There are one or two manufacturing flaws of minor clay pops or bumps. Nothing significant.
