Cheese Dish Shelley Dainty Present From Ilfracombe TLC Shabby 1930s Base Marriage
This is part Shelley, England neat cheese dish or cheese dome that is a marriage, meaning the 2 pieces didn't start out together.
The base measures 6.5 inches by 5.5 inches and is a Dainty shape By Shelley China, England with the mark for 1925-1945 and the pattern British Registry mark for 1896 which is in line for the design of the dome or lid.
The lid bears the victorian sentiment A Present From Ilfacombe, an English seaside resort and measures 3.25 inches high by 5 inches by 3.5.
The lid does not have a maker's mark, but does has 3 tiny gold numerals on the inside. The base and lid are not a perfect fit, and there is a very slight color difference between the 2, so I think it's a marriage set.
The pieces are in very good++ condition with no chips or cracks and only minor gold wear. A neat, decorative and useful piece, though, even if a marriage.
