Rare Minton Majolica Strawberry Stand. This fantastic piece of Minton is in the form of a strawberry dish. The piece is made up of six individually crafted dishes each in the form of a strawberry leaf, beautifully painted and the Minton mark found on each. The leaves interlock and sit on a bespoke tray. The tray sits on a revolving base facilitating serving. Each leaf can be removed and used as its own serving dish. The piece is finished with a superbly made strawberry finial. The pattern number is 2278 and manufacturing took place between 1891 and 1895. The pattern number and additional Minton marks are on the underside of the piece . This is the best example of its kind we have seen. A rare beautiful piece indeed.
The piece is in good condition with only age related signs of wear.
