1930s Sundial Beswick Ware China Cottage Cheese Dish Model 542

I love this 1930s Sundial Beswick Ware China Cottage Cheese Dish Model 542 and so did the late Queen Mary! She bought one at the Trade Fair in 1937. Designed by Mr Watkin, a freelance designer at Beswick, the design was registered in 1938/39 (827924).

The lid is a beautiful design with a typical English Country feel. Incorporating a wall with flowers growing up it, topped with a lovely brown sundial. The plate is cream with an embossed green border representing grass.

Embossed on the plate with:

Made in England
542

Printed With:-

Regd No.

“Sundial”
AS Purchased By
HM Queen Mary

Model numbers were assigned for Beswick designs in 1933 but the model designs were only dated from 1936, commencing with model number 378. Model 542 was made from 1937.
