An antique porcelain butter dish with 6 matching butter pats. The large dish held the majority of the butter and a pat would be placed at a dinner setting for each diner. This set features tiny bridal roses around the rims with hints of purple and blue. All the rims are trimmed in a shiny gold.

The bottoms are hallmarked with the Basset Limoges Austria mark which dates from 1890 until 1963 when the firm closed. We would date this set to the last decade of the 19th Century. You can see ash marks from the manufacturing process under the lid. This is indicative of the 1890s until just after the turn of the 20th Century before ovens were switched to gas fired.

The master butter dish measures 7 1/2 inches wide for the under-plate and sits 4 inches tall to top of the lid handle. Each butter pat is 3 1/4 inches in diameter. There are two butter pats that show tight hairlines. We noticed these when looking at the back of each one but they are hard to see from the front. We have priced this set accordingly. The butter dish is in excellent condition.
