Stilton cheese is quintessentially English and the best comes from the Queen's grocer, Fortnum and Mason. At Christmas it is often on the festive table and comes in these stylish ironstone storage pots. This was a special design, which is no longer available, thus a collection begins! 

This Stilton jar is not terribly old but is collectible and attractive none the less. Made in England and found in France. It measures 15cm or 6" tall and 10cm 4" diameter. It has the Fortnum and Mason stamp on the bottom.
