This vintage Majolica Minton Beehive Cheese Bell Dome is in perfect condition.

Minton was established in 1793 and made porcelain, earthenware and majolica etc. I can’t say this is as early as1871, but this base stamp says ‘Minton’. After 1871, they added an “s” and made it Minton’s. We only claim this is an early vintage piece with no claim to any date.

Sold as seen.
