This large ironstone MARGARINE display advertising stand was originally used for displaying butter, margarine and other dairy products on the grocer’s shop counter. It measures 15 3/4” long x 11 3/4” across and 2” tall. The decorative advertising is printed in black.
Parnell and Sons supplied grocers and butchers the slabs to offer a customer to purchase slices of margarine, cut off and sold. 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, one of the best we have seen. Crazing and light discoloration mainly to the rear. A very heavy substantial piece. The workmanship is similar to early plumbing fitting, was meant to be durable. A great example, offered as is. Very popular with the American market today although probably first made for the English trade.
