Offered here is the sought-after Green Depression Glass Round Covered Butter Dish in the Poppy No. 2 or Florentine pattern by Hazel Atlas. Florentine Number 2 is characterized by round pieces, rather than the angled and serrated pieces of Florentine Number 1. The pattern, commonly known as Poppy, though its official name is Florentine, is an all-over swirling poppy motif molded into the glass. An all-over pattern of scrolling stylized poppy flowers and intertwined vines covers the outside of the cover and the underside including the rim of this transparent green bowl. A medallion of the motif is repeated in the center of the butter bottom. The green fluoresces beautifully under black light.
The bottom of the butter dish is 6-1/2 inches in diameter and 1-inch deep. The dish is nearly 3-inches tall with the cover on.
Florentine Number 2 was made by Hazel-Atlas from 1932 to 1935. There is no mark.
There is a 1/2-inch scratch in the top of the cover. The expected inner rim roughness on the bottom is present but minor, and there is a nearly invisible bit of mold seam roughness around the outer rim. There is a smooth indentation on one corner of the finial on the cover. This is so smooth that I am inclined to think that it is a factory flaw rather than a chip. Other than the expected flaws characteristic of Depression Era Glass, such as bubbles and minor surface scratches, there is no damage.
