Early American Prescut (EAPC) Covered Butter Dish
The Anchor Hocking Glass Company began production of the Early American Prescut line in the 1960's. Because of the featured star within the pattern, it was soon dubbed "Star of David" by its collectors and the pattern made its way into almost every home. Prescut glass was very moderately priced and affordable to most while still giving an appearance of more expensive crystal or cut glass. Anchor Hocking had a winning pattern on their hands and proceeded to manufacture items in this pattern that not only would grace the breakfast table but would also make its way to the more elegant Wedding Reception or Bridal Shower.
The covered butter dish was sold separately and could also be found available in boxed table sets. The base measures approximately 7 3/8" from tab handle to tab handle and 3 1/8" wide. With the top on, the piece is about 2 1/8" tall.
This covered butter dish holds 1/4 lb. or 1 stick of butter. It is without chips or nicks and remains useful in the kitchen or the dining room.
