English Ironstone BALLOON YEAST Dairy Distillery Stand c1900

This late 19th century ironstone BALLOON YEAST display stand dates to 1880 - 1900. Originally used for displaying dairy products or yeast made products on the grocer’s shop counter. It measures 12 3/4” long and 1o 7/8” across and 1” tall and has a concave well. The decorative advertising is transfer-printed in black and underneath the glaze. The front of the stand reads ‘PURE BRITISH BALLOON YEAST’.

The stand maker is unknown. (We have seen similar stands marked with stamps of Wedgwood Doulton and MAW.) Undoubtedly other Victorian pottery firms made commercial advertising wares in the Staffordshire region of England, made to order for shop-fitters, breweries. A sturdy stand was meant for the heavy duty trade use and easily adaptable to a country kitchen or a contemporary cheese and wine shop.

The stand is in great condition. A heavy substantial piece. Even utensil wear and rubbed corners from decades of use. The workmanship is similar to early plumbing fittings, was meant to be durable. A great example, offered as is.
