|A lovely bone china footed cake dish or compote by Hammersley & Co., Longton, Staffordshire, England. This piece has a flared and fluted pedestal base topped with a lobed and fluted edged circular dish. The whole is decorated in gilt with a floral design. Heavy gilt trim. The rim has what appears to be a tiny firing flaw (like a burst bubble) rather than a chip otherwise, no other problems. A great display item for tea cakes or pastries. Measures 8 inches in diameter and approximately 4 inches in height.|
