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.
