This is an absolutely gorgeous antique covered ironstone or porcelain cheese keeper that we estimate to be from the 1880's Eastlake period. It has a beautiful orange, brown and dark blue floral and butterfly pattern with gold decoration. This is a very large keeper measuring approximately 9 3/4" x 11" and 6" tall, not including the handle on the cover. The sides have vertical ribbing. There is a chip on the under plate on the underside that shows a bit on the edge and some very light fine crazing and minor discoloration. The cover has a curved handle with a raised ivy leaf decoration below with gold decoration. Gold decoration on the ivy has some minor loss. This wonderful antique cheese keeper is estate fresh and in remarkable condition for its age. 4 pounds 8 ounces
