The cheese dish was a familiar part of most Victorian kitchens, used to protect the cheese from vermin and keep it moist. These would usually be kept in a larder or cool side of the kitchen.

 

This is a good example of a 1880s cheese dish of generous size, mainly white with floral decoration and a hydra handle.

 

In good condition gilding rubbed from edges.

 

Dimensions: 15cm high, with a base of 24cm x 21cm
