Here we have, a very nice, Northwood, Rubina butter dish in their Royal Oak pattern. It is in excellent condition, with one small nick on the inside lip of the base, and a couple of small rough spots on the edge also. No cracks, or repairs, or major damaging to the piece. The edges of the lid and base have been ground and polished when making the piece, and some of the rough spots could have been done from that. They are tiny! The nick is in the area of the rough spots, and is shown in the fifth photo. Great piece, with the lid being clear at the top, and going to red at the bottom, and the base is all red. This is a high heat flashed on finish, which doesn't peel like the later done pieces by other companies. It was meant to stay on. The top has an acorn knob, with acorns and leaves and limbs all around the knob. The base has four leaves and limbs around it. This piece dates from 1888 to 1892, and is unmarked. It measures 5 1/2" high with the lid, 5" square at the widest, and has a 4 1/4" opening, and a 4 1/4" base. Very hard to find pattern. One not seen often, and is considered scarce or rare. Great piece for a collection of Northwood glass!!
