In 'Chats with Housekeepers', by Phyllis Browne [publishes in 'The Nottinghamshire Guardian' for 18th June 1886, there is a recipe for the making of cheese fondu which she says can be baked either in home-made paper cases or ready-made paper cases available from 'any high class fancy stationer'. Silver ramequin tins appear from the 1890's for this dish and sets of six became a popular wedding gift. The baked cheese mixture was served within a china or paper container within the ramequin.
The weight given below is for the set of six.
