A sweet pair of antique nut dishes or butter pats in the form of a Pug or Bulldog and measuring just 2 1/4 inches in diameter. The dog's features are done in raised relief and I would date them to late 1800's. There is a chip to one dog's ear and the other has a chip on the bottom edge. Their eyes and mouth were outlined in black paint but some has rubbed off from age.
