Antique Dairy Slab

This original antique English dairy slab is an absolute rarity which makes us desire them even more so. That and the graphical makers stamp (what’s not to love about black & white vintage typography. Dating to the late 1800s, early 1900s, and made from white ironstone (stoneware), this original Wedgwood dairy slab was once utilized by a grocer’s store more than a century ago for selling butter and margarine from, with the ironstone keeping the produce cool. Highly sought as collectibles, these are a true rarity nowadays. With slight damage to rim, it is in otherwise wonderful condition with no cracks or large chips. Of larger proportions it’s both very decorative, with a superb central makers stamp on the top Parnall & Sons Ltd, as well as also extremely functional. Re-purpose today as a platter to serve food:  we’re thinking a cheese & biscuit platter, a Christmas ham, even a fruit platter.  In the 10 years we have dealt in antiques, this is the first dairy slab we have ever had the pleasure of sourcing!
