Edwardian Brown Transferware Bone Dish Crescent 1907 English Ironstone Meakin
This is an absolutely beautiful Edwardian era crescent bone dish or curved salad dish made by J G Meakin, England 1907-1912.
The crescent salad or bone dish is a molded ironstone with a sepia transfer or transferware floral with hand painted accents and gold foliage and trim.
The crescent dish or bone dish measures .8 inch high by 6.5 inches long by 4 inches wide and is in very good +++ used vintage condition.
There are no chips or cracks and only very minor gold wear and a few bits of kiln dust and a bit of mild crazing which is normal in ironstone of this age.
Crescent dishes were developed by the victorians to sit by the dinner plate and collect the bones of the meal.
They are used now for salads, sauces, sushi at the dinner table. I keep my glasses in one at night by the bedside. I also use one on my desk for paper clips. The desk doesn't have to be boring!
