This beautiful cover can be used for cheese but cookies or candies under it would look just as good!!! It has a wonder cream background. On the front and back it has been decorated with transfers of bright orange flowers, cobalt blue and brown leaves on wispy vines. Gold has been applied around the flowers and the blue leaves and also in nice wide scrolls that have been mixed amongst the foliage. In between the larger designs is a smaller group with smaller flowers and leaves. The bottom has a gold band and the finial has gold accents. Two holes have been left on the upper portion of the lid to allow the gas from the cheese to escape. IT IS RARE TO FIND ANTIQUE EARTHENWARE IN "LIKE NEW" CONDITION BECAUSE OF WEAR FROM USE AND AGE. TINY GLAZE FLAKES AND CRAZING IS NORMAL AND ADDS CHARACTER TO EACH PIECE.
