A very rare shape. This butter tub has colorful flowers on all sides and sprigs scattered on the inside. These early Derby colors are charming and very attractive, and these may have been done by an anonymous artist known as the Cotton Stem painter. Unfortunately there is a hairline on one of the long sides (shown). There is also some staining and minor wear to the edges, mostly from the firing, which left the edges a little rough and the glaze uneven—typical firing faults in the earliest days. There is a Bronfman Collection label on the bottom. The size is five by three and three-quarter inches, and two and three-quarter inches high.


A warm welcome! Please consider all our offerings, and feel free to inquire about more information. We’re always buying, so let us know if you have early porcelain items to sell.
