This is such an elegant but simple design and will go with any setting or can stand alone. I think they used the bowl as an individual waste bowl but today it would be perfect as that little candy or condiment dish on the table, The wonderful dish has survived many years. I'm assuming it is a butter dish but I have seen sponge and soap dishes similar also. It is the elegant white and gold decorations allowing it to be used with any decorative table set. The dish has wonderful rope designed finial accented in gold. Gold bands accent the lid and the base. The inside of the dish has a concave draining section that is removable. This piece is in excellent condition with no chips or cracks. Manufacturing anomalies may exist, the occasional tiny iron speck, dust 'bump' in the glaze, etc.
