Kerrie Ford of the National Museum of Australian Pottery holding a rare cheese cover and plate.The National Museum of Australian Pottery (NMAP) in Holbrook recently added this rare, c. 1882, 22cm high, Bristol glazed, Bendigo Pottery cheese cover and plate to its collection.
It was purchased at auction by the Friends of the NMAP Inc.
“The design or pattern is not rare, there are a number of Majolica glazed examples known; the rarity lies in the fact that it is impressed under the plate: ‘TBPC’ (The Bendigo Pottery Company) which was only used between 1882 and 1885,” Geoff Ford, co-owner/director of the museum said.
“ To my knowledge, this is the only Bendigo Pottery cheese cover and plate known with this mark.
“There are however, a small number of other Majolica glazed Bendigo Pottery pieces known with this mark.”
