1881 Worcester Majolica Bamboo China Cheese Dome


A very nice looking Majolica china cheese dome and dish, decorated in a bamboo design.

The majolica glaze is in a cream background on which are painted brown and green bamboo shoots. The inside is finished in a rich turquoise colour and the underside of the dish has the lesser known mark for Worcester Royal Porcelain Company. It has the date mark 1881 (letter S).

Condition is very good on the cover, with just light crazing to the glaze. The dish is also in good condition but has a small hairline crack running from the base, which appears stable.
