This gorgeous piece is in excellent used condition. It has a pretty grapevine pattern at the top and bottom of the bell and also around the rim of the plate. This large size dome could hold an entire piece of Stilton cheese. It also features a rope finial on top-truly charming!
As for wear, there are no cracks or crazing. There is a very light brown spot on plate, (see picture). It may come off with cleaning I just was not sure what product to use on it. There is also a small color chip on the bottom of the plate and inside bell, (see pictures). Fortunately both are underneath and not in noticeable places.There is also a small chip on the edge of bell, (second picture). I went over it with a fine tooth comb and I can not detect any other damage accept for normal wear for it's age. Other than that, it has been kept well in a China cabinet and looks great!
As for the maker, I have asked a few experts and one seems to think it is Wedgwood and the other thinks it is Dudson. I could find no pictures of this exact piece anywhere on the internet.
