Large antique 'Cream' pail - Maling

Large antique 'Cream' pail - Maling

A rare extra large Edwardian white ironstone dairy pail, decorated in underglaze black transfer with stylised 'Cream' lettering.


Produced at the beginning of the 20thC by Maling (with their makers stamp to the underside of the foot), this impressive cream stein is the largest and rarest of the three sizes known to be made, with two smaller patterns more commonly seen. A very decorative example with attractive fat staining and nicely moulded applied handles, this grand antique cream pail really makes a statement.


Approx dimensions

31cm Tall (12-1/8")

30.5cm Rim diameter (12")

37.5cm Width incl handles (14-3/4")

19cm Foot diameter (7-1/2")


Professional restoration to chips and small cracks on the rim and the foot, executed in a manner that blends in with all of the original staining on the inside and the rim. Some firing imperfections, wear marks, but it displays beautifully and would make for a scarce addition to any serious kitchenalia collection.
