This wonderful dish has survived many years. I’m assuming it is a butter dish but I have seen sponge and soap dishes similar also. It is completely free of any transfer or painted decorations allowing it to be used with any decorative table set. The dish has wonderful basket weave / braided handles and finial. The inside of the dish has a concaved draining section that is not removable. I just wonder how they would have cleaned this properly?? It is oval in shape with upturned rim. This piece is in excellent condition with no chips or cracks. Manufacturing anomalies may exist, the occasional tiny iron speck, dust 'bump' in the glaze, etc.
Backstamp: Mark F H& Co line over L British Registry mark ca.1876-1889
Measures: 3 1/2" H x 9" w handle to handle x 7" W
