Rare Antique Ironstone Colander
A rare antique Dutch ironstone colander, with twin handles and foot made by Petrus Regouta & Co Maastricht - and stamped with the factory's nineteenth century sphinx logo to its underside.
Plain, unadorned ironstone colanders with clean-lines and simple forms were part of everyday 19th and early 20th century below-stairs life . Their purity and functionality is as appealing today as it was then and they make an arresting addition to the modern home.

Material: Ceramic ironstone
Diameter handle to handle 26cm Diameter 20cm Height 10cm
