Ironstone PURE BUTTER Dairy Shop Display English Stand c1950

Code: 10221

SOLD

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.
