1863 - 1890
[Belleek, Co. Fermanagh]
This cheese dish is a very clever piece of design. Patented by John McCall & Co London, used to keep and preserve a large portion of cheese. As the cheese was used up, the ring sections were removed, one by one, to lessen the quantity of air circulating around the cheese.
