Unusual Wedgwood Cheese Dome

Unusual Wedgwood Cheese Dome

Code: J21598


A most unusual, Wedgwood cheese dome and stand. This is marked “WEDGWOOD” and it is also impressed with the letters “KFK”. This is the three letter date code for the year 1882. The stand is moulded with a basket weave design and the rim is highlighted in turquoise enamels. The cheese dome is moulded with flowers and foliage and this is coloured in polychrome enamels. The overall effect, albeit a little garish, is very decorative. The design is one that we have not come across before, and you would not necessarily attribute it to Wedgwood, but it is well marked as proof.

There is some damage but due to the rarity of the piece I felt that this was acceptable. The base is stained and there are numerous chips around the rim of the dome. These are not visible when the dome is sitting in the stand.

Dimensions overall : Height  19cm. Diameter 22.5cm.
