This is a French Haviland & Co Limoges hard paste porcelain three-piece dome butter dish, with a reticulated insert. The date is 1893 to 1930.
The dish was made for Pogue, Cincinnati, a high end department store founded by Henry and Samuel Pogue.
The dish is 3 ½” high and 9” wide.
The pattern is Schleiger 575, which is described as being on a smooth blank, with a gold edge and a gold band, and the leaves and flowers are in two shades of green with red outlines and a red design above the leaves.
There are no chips, nicks, cracks or crazing. There is no obvious wear to the gold. It looks like the dish was never used.
Under the lid there is a red factory decorating mark that reads as Haviland & Co Limoges for Pogue Cincinnati. The bottom plate has the same red decorating mark plus the green factory mark of Haviland France.
