- Curator's comments
- This cheese-dome (model no. 1923) was produced in two sizes, 13.5 cm diameter and 21 cm. The smaller of the two was designed to fit precisely on to the 'Kilta' plate, designed by Kaj Franck for Arabia one year earlier, in 1951 (see museum. no. 2014,8024.9.c). The two can be seen together in the photograph here. References to the cheese-dome (and plate) can be found in the following publication:
