19th Century English Fern Ware "Go to Bed"
A wonderful piece of Victorian English Fern Ware. This is a 2 1/2 inches long, 1 1/8 inches wide and 5/8 inches oval shaped ‘Go-To-Bed’.
What is so wonderful about this ‘Go-To-Bed’ piece is that it slides open where others have had a lift-out-lid. A ‘Go-To-Bed’ would have been a replacement to a candle and candlestick holder.
Condition: Very Good. It looks as if the end striker has been replaced. The paper with the fern pattern is lightly faded but otherwise this a a great find, could be used and a wonderful addition to a collection.
