Freeform Butter/Cheese dish UFT Pattern

This is the last and cheapest find from Keddleston Hall last month.  I think, if I was more sophisticated I wouldn't be so drawn to these patterns.  I think, what excites the real purists is the big asymmetrical freeform shaped vases from this era, that have no decoration, or else have the smoky stripy decorations designed by John Read.  Whereas what I get off on, is the domestic, kitchen stuff, with patterns designed by Ruth Pavely - they transport me  straight into a decade that I've never known, and maybe wouldn't have liked, but are just so stylish.
