1x Antique white ironstone Parnall butcher’s plinth
An early 20thC butcher's display plinth, heavily made in white ironstone pottery with a slightly raised moulded rim and applied feet.
The underside is marked in under-glaze black transfer with the trapezoid retailers mark of 'Parnall & Sons Ltd. Avery House, Clerkenwell Green E.C.1, Works - Fishponds, Bristol'.
Usually made by Staffordshire potteries and sold to shop outfitters like Parnall or Banfield, these hard wearing slabs of white ironstone were perfect for the turn of the century butcher, keeping meat cool in counters & windows throughout the day before refrigeration was commonplace. They now make for very impressive and substantial serving ware and display beautifully when propped up to reveal the transfer.
A rarely offered form of butchers slab, with an uncommon trapezoid retailers mark which includes the London address as well as the Fishponds works in Bristol.
39cm x 24cm
This plinth is in overall good condition for its age with three old chips on the underside - two on opposing corners and one in the middle of one foot.
