This item is a round covered butter dish with a finial topped dome cover made in the "Sierra" also known as "Pinwheel" pattern. The bottom of the piece is 1 1/8" deep, 6" in diameter, by 3 5/16" across the base. The domed cover is 3" at the finial top and 4 1/2" in diameter. The edge of the base has the typical saw toothed edge and the cover and sides of the base have sections that line up with the rim decoration that flow upward to the square finial at the top of the cover. The piece has no chips, cracks, flakes, or signs of use, a wonderful example of the "Pinwheel" pattern. Please feel free to contact us with any questions or to make an offer.
