This lovely Blue Onion Butter Pat is a very fine quality porcelain, with a pretty scalloped shape which comes to a point on every third scallop. The design has good deep color and is well defined. It measures 3" across and 3/4" tall, with the blue crossed swords mark used by so many of the good porcelain factories in Germany, and another mark I cannot make out, it would date from around the 1880s. It is in excellent condition, with no damage of any kind, a really beautiful piece of Blue Onion, part of a large collection we purchased on our recent buying trip.
