The top rim of the urn has an egg and dart decoration to match that on the neck and apart from the loops missing, the damage to the male peg and various minor chips overall, it is in generally good order without sections missing, large chips or cracks and a seriously good looker and of course bearing a magic name.

All original, quality 1920's, superb, childs, two seater estate cart in ash, originally pulled or pushed around the garden by the children's Nanny or maid, with one or two children on board.

The small cast iron wheels to the rear are for support when the cart is not in use and the two seats are reversible to enable the two children or one to face backwards or forwards or face each other or facing away, an ingeniously designed little cart, for sake of a name, probably made by the estate or household carpenter.

Sepia Decorated Cheese Dish
See our "Dairy Equipment" section for current stock of similar items.

This wonderful example has pictorial panels to the top and three sides and decoration to all the edges of both the base and cover and both pieces are stamped with the registration number for the year 1891. First, the very detailed panels. The top depicts a scene from the Aesop's fable 'The Fox and The Crow', with the fable printed within ribbon swags. One side depicts "Too Much Cheese" with three rats at the cheese baited in a gin trap. The other side has a rat on the billiard table with a picture on the wall of 'Welsh Rabbits' and the reverse entitled "Wise Man of Gotham" with a scene from 'The Merry Tales of The Mad Men of Gotham'. The scene shows three cheese's rolling down the hill. Condition: although bright and clean in colour to the outside and decorated areas, this item does show much discolouration to the inside consistent with use, as cheese does leave fat stains over a period of time stain. This tends to penetrate into the glazing. There are also two chips to the base and a repair to the back corner of the lid, with a hairline crack running away from it to the top. It looks superb, when displayed. All is complete, but not for use. Base 10.5" x 7.5", total 6" tall.
