Vintage Cheese Dishes & Boards at yay retro!
At this time of year our thoughts often turn to cosy supper times and parties, so with this in mind yay retro! have a lovely stock of vintage cheese boards and cheese dishes for sale ready to serve your most favourite of evening nibbles vintage style.
We love the Autumny colours of these 1960/70s tiled boards. The one on the right has a tile designed by re-knowned and collectable potter Alan Wallwork whose tiles often appeared on coffee tables at the time too. Bottom left has a tile which is very reminiscent of abstract paintings being made in this era.
The tiles chosen for cheese and serving boards in the 50s and 60s often depicted Chianti wine bottles, and other foods (see top left). If you prefer a flowery serving board then you might love the Scandi style small serving platter on the right below. We love the bright colours and 60s flower on this one! Perfect for hanging on the wall as a display piece too. The larger floral ceramic cheese board (top left) is from Jersey Pottery. This is a fabulous good sized board which would make a lovely gift, and again look marvellous on the wall.
If you want a fun cheese board then take a look at our mousey board which comes in it's original box! (bottom left above).
Now on to vintage cheese dishes. For me the epitome of fantastic design comes from 1930-50s Poole Pottery. Minimal, stylish and made from stunning quality pottery the sky blue cheese dish on the left is our top choice. It was when I bought one of these that I got hooked on vintage and started up the yay retro! shop!!
Other fantastic designs in the cheese dish stakes include those designed by Woods ware. At the bottom on the left is a classic shaped vintage 30/40s cheese dish from Woods which people look for in the plain Beryl green colour. This is a much earlier dish - the same shape, but a hand-painted version covered in anenomes. This is pre-war and makes a fantastic gift idea for any Woods-ware collector. Or how about the studio pottery cheese dome (top right), this looks to be from the 70s and is a good solid, classy way to serve and store your cheddar!
