This lovely, shallow, bucket shaped dish was produced circa early 1900s and is a piece of American Brilliant Cut Glass which was intended for use as a butter tub. The dish has a wonderful large flower cut into the base. It is reminiscent of the Hughes Cornflower design, but I do not know enough about that to know if this does indeed fall into that category.
The sides of the dish feature a fine cut and hobstar pattern which is pleasing to the eye and frames the central flower beautifully. On either side of the tub are two tab handles.
This piece measures 5 1/4" in diameter and 1 1/2" in height including the handles.
in fair condition, it does have a few chips around the rim as is often found on the tips of a saw-tooth rim and it shows some light wear from age. I do feel like this would be a lovely piece for a collection.
