Very Vintage John Maddock and Sons, Ltd. Covered Butter - Cheese Keeper

This offering is for a pretty, colorful, covered butter or cheese dish manufactured by the English firm of John Maddock & Sons. The back stamp goes back to 1896. Also impressed into the body on the bottom are Roman Numerals XIV and some lettering I can't make out. Written in gold is a tiny number 5 on both the underside of the lid and on the bottom of the butter bowl. Matching pieces from the beginning.

There are no chips, bites, stains, or repairs. There is some crazing in the clear glaze on the inside butter dish bottom and on the outside bottom. I doubt if it was used more than once. Temperature changes over time cause the crazing. The border decoration (Green Ribbon/Scrolls and Rust Flowers) is fresh and bright without any wear. The gilt trim is excellent. The only wear on the gilt is on the finial. See picture.

In researching this piece I found a popular china replacement service has this decoration in Green Ribbon/Scrolls and Rust Flowers like this butter keeper and the pattern is called MAD128. They also show a pattern named Lucerne which has the same Ribbon/Scrolls and Flowers in a blue border or a green border. If you are looking to replace a covered butter or cheese dish, look at the finial closely as Maddock also made some covered items in this color, with fancier finials.

SIZE: 7-3/8" Outside Diameter X Approx. 3-3/4" Tall
