Aynsley Hexagonal pin dish – $30

A vintage collection of English “Aynsley” Fine Bone China Pieces.

18th Century Aynsley Design. Hexagonal pin dish with knife. The decoration being of a shrub in full colorful flower with a long beaked blue bird on branch. This being a reproduction of an original 18th century “Aynsley” design. Probably mid to late 20th century.

Pristine condition; there are no chips or cracks. No box condition: new Cash and pick up only More items available deals on more items.

That’s right, folks, this is a new antique. No box because we could only fine octagonal ones. This is a one of a kind pin dish with a bird on it offered by Sparky’s cats, obviously. Question: Why is there a matching knife to a pin dish? Wouldn’t a cheese dish be more likely to have a match? Ah, well, who knows exactly what goes on in the minds of a Sparky.

  1. Shape of the blade rules out cheese; did a quick look on eBay — it’s a butter knife and dish.
    Found an exact match for £4.99 (£27 for shipping, though). And, an actual antique, too.

    From a cursory examination, “pin dishes” are smaller and with less lip on their edge.
    They come in several geometries, too. If, in more typical Euclidean ones.

    Saw no prices over $20, so Spark is barking.
