The manufacturer’s mark on the bottom has a scale encircled by the words “MIDDLETOWN PLATE CO. QUADRUPLEPLATE”. The number “439” and the words “HARD WHITE METAL” are also stamped in the bottom.

MEASUREMENTS

9 ½” (24.1 cm) tall x 6” (15.2 cm) diameter. Weighs 1 lb 5.9 oz (620 g)

CONDITION

There are no cracks, or breaks. The horns on the cows head are intact. There is pitting inside the well. The dish still has a fair amount of silver but there are losses. The foot has a couple of small nicks and an area where it was joined from manufacture.

A fun cow butter dish that is a must for so many decors.
