We are pleased to offer for your buying consideration a FABULOUS VINTAGE MINIATURE FRENCH FASHION SIZE PORCELAIN COVERED CHEESE DISH!
This HARD TO FIND tiny treasure is sure to THRILL the most SEASONED of miniature enthusiasts----the perfect ACCESSORY displayed in the salon of your favorite POUPEE or in a larger scale DOLLHOUSE or ROOM BOX dining room vignette!
The dish is of ENGLISH ORIGIN and is made of delicate CREAM PORCELAIN and consists of two separate pieces, a FANCY TRAY and matching CHEESE COVER with tiny handle! The total dimensions of the cheese dish are 3 1/4" wide by 2 1/2" deep, and is 2 1/2" tall including the top handle; separately the tray is 3 1/4" by 2 1/2", with the cover measuring 2 1/2" wide, 1 3/4" deep and 1 1/2" tall (2" including the handle). For a piece so small, it features WONDERFUL DETAILS, including tiny SCALLOPED EDGING to the tray, FINE MOLDING to the cheese dish including a fancy handle, rich HAND PAINTED gold embellishments, and a regal red and blue COAT-OF-ARMS transfer on the top of the dish, rendering a wonderful very REALISTIC overall presentation! We do not see any marks underneath for the porcelain manufacturer, but the coat-of-arms insignia is marked "HASTINGS" for the family name associated with it! There are no apparent chips, cracks or repairs; it is in EXCELLENT and ALL ORIGINAL condition and sure to enhance the most ADVANCED of miniature collections!
We are showing this SUPERB miniature being modeled by our 13" antique Bru Smiler French Fashion doll for scale purposes; we think it would make a PERFECT display piece filled with a wedge or cheese or other DELICACIES showcased on your Fashion's server, or in a larger scale DOLLHOUSE or ROOM BOX vignette, so why not PAMPER yours with this wonderful decorative miniature accessory!
