Large Victorian Cheese Dish with Hydra Handle
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
