Not only do I have a weakness for domed cake plates, I can't resist an ironstone tureen either.
I found this beauty at the Goodwill yesterday. As you can see it has a lovely underplate, a ladle and the lid had a charming fruit finial.It's in perfect condition and I'll be taking it into the store soon.
I've had this antique English covered dish for years. I use it at Thanksgiving filled with buttery mashed potatoes!
This is a little Italian creamware piece I found antiquing in Atlanta a few years ago. I love the basketweave detailing on the lid.
I can fit a whole chicken in this large covered baking dish made by Arabia of Finland! It is one of my favorite pieces that I found at an estate sale in New Jersey some 25 years ago. I really splurged by paying $25 for it, but have seen it selling for much more. And I love my little floral embossed mini tureen that I use for chocolate or strawberry sauce for ice cream buffets.
My ironstone really stands out against the mahogany sideboard and red walls of my dining room!
Please come see me at Merchant Square Antiques where I always have more pieces of ironstone available for you too!
