Offered here is a lovely Jeannette Adam Pink Depression Glass Covered Butter Dish. Adam is an easily recognizable pattern by the four-point geometric design in the center. Surrounded by a pretty floral rim, both the bottom and the cover of the dish have the feathery Art Deco pattern of ferns and leaves that makes Adam easily distinguishable from other Depression Glass patterns. The artistic design forms a pretty and intricate star shape.
The square bottom plate is 6-inches across and 1-inch deep. The covered dish is approximately 4-inches tall with the cover on. The center well is 4-3/8 inches in diameter.
Adam was made by Jeannette from 1932 to 1934. There is no mark.
I find only one tiny spot of inner rim roughness on the bottom, and an extra bead of glass on the inner rim of the top. Other than the expected flaws characteristic of Depression Era Glass, such as bubbles, mold seam roughness, or other irregularities, there is no damage.
According to Gene Florence's 19th Edition of the Collector's Encyclopedia of Depression Glass, the four arrow points in the original Adam butter dish point in the four compass directions of North, South, East, and West. The points of this butter dish verify that it is authentic from the 1930s.
