For the butter lovers and retro pickers out there. This lovely retro butter dish is decorated and a typical timeless deco design with thin hand-painted delicate pinstripes red and gold as accenting.
In very good condition over all for its age with no cracks or restoration. The lid is excellent overall, although it does have some staining to the edges of the cover (where it meets the dish) and a couple of tiny nibbles to the edge. The dish, has some staining and there some marks. The gold edging is mostly worn on the dish and there is also a small chip to the underside of the dish. This does not affect the overall appearance of the butter dish. Still very lovely indeed.
The underside of the dish is fully marked with the incised words “Beswick” and the shape number 1432 dating this butter dish to between 1954 and 1971 – although the design is more likely 1950’s.
The dish measures approximately 18cm by 15cm and the height to the finial is approximately 10cm.
A lovely practical and collectable butter dish by Beswick.
