Pair Ironstone Ham Stands
A good pair of Edwardian ironstone ham stands that would have originally graced a nineteenth century counter-service food store. The ham was stood on top, its curve fitting into the stand's well, so it could be easily carved in situ - as well as beautifully displayed. Our pair of stands have a wonderful weight, and an exceptionally pleasing shape.
Their pared-back pleasing shape and off-white ironstone colour provide a glimpse into Victorian utilitarianism and into nineteenth century daily life and its needs – which now chimes with our own twenty first century ideals and pared-back modern aesthetic. Stand a plate on top, and they can be used to display and serve pies, cakes, tarts, whatever you please.
