English Dairy Slabs

I was not financially compensated for this post. I received a sample for review and custom content purposes.  The opinions are completely my own based on my experience.

You guys! Do you remember reading about Living Soul Pottery back in June? Wyatt is so incredibly talented and I feel so honored to be featuring his work again for the holidays.

I love Christmas, tablescapes, and my Living Soul Pottery collection so when Wyatt asked if I would feature his work again as part of a holiday series, of course I said yes! Probably not the most healthy, but my family loves chocolate, cheese and bread/butter probably more than anything - paired together - HEAVEN! 🙈  

You can create such a beautiful tablescape using English dairy slabs and I love the history behind them!

" Before mechanical refrigeration it was necessary to keep dairy items cool. The dairy slabs would be kept outside during the winter nights, and then placed in the display case holding the butter and cheese keeping it from melting. During the warm season the dairy slabs would be placed on a block of ice and stay cool for the dairy products on top of them. It was also common for a glass dome to be on top to keep the flies off." - Living Soul Pottery 

This FROMAGE Dairy Slab is a reproduction of a 19th Century English Ironstone display ceramic piece used in grocery stores to keep the butter and cheese cool. All of Wyatt's pieces have a food-safe glaze. 

These pieces are perfect for holiday entertaining and would make such an amazing gift for Christmas. You guys know I love all things French so I was instantly drawn to the FROMAGE (Cheese) and CHOCOLAT (Chocolate) slabs!! 

The most recent addition to my collection is BUTTER! This 7" mini-dairy slab w/ glass dome is one of Wyatt's newest creations. Perfect for smaller spaces or for stacking your collection.

                                          

I love how his dairy slabs transition so well for each season and will never go out of style! Truly collector pieces that can be passed down to generations to come. 

As always, thank you for stopping by the blog! It's because of each of you that I'm able to continue to share the things I truly love. 

xx,

Amy
