Cheese dishes

Also known as cheese keepers, these consist of a rectangular tray with a lid and single handle on top. There is usually a small hole in the lid near the handle, to allow ventilation.

Most of the ones shown below were manufactured by Wood & Sons in the 1920s and 30s. This basic shape was widespread across a wide variety of patterns, and can be found in two sizes, the main difference being the height of the lid.

Please scroll down to the bottom of the page for a few examples of cheese dishes by other manufacturers.
