Ironstone PURE BUTTER Dairy Shop Display English Stand c1950
This ironstone PURE BUTTER was originally used for displaying butter and other dairy products on the grocer’s shop counter. It measures 13 1/4” long and 11 1/2” across and 2 5/8” tall and has a concave well.
The decorative advertising is printed in black. The front of the stand reads ‘PURE BUTTER’.
Grocers and butchers used the slabs to offer a customer to purchase slices of butter and cheeses, cut off and sold. A sturdy stand was meant for the heavy duty trade use and easily adaptable to a country kitchen or a contemporary cheese and wine shop.
The stand is in great condition. A great example, offered as is. No chips or cracks.
Very popular with the American market today although probably first made for the English trade.
