Blue Transferware Vintage Tonquin Covered Butter Dish w/ Cow Lid RARE & Knife Rest
Brand Royal Staffordshire
Here is a very, very hard to find Royal Staffordshire Clarice Cliff covered dish with a cow resting on top. It is in the popular and collectible Tonquin pattern depicting a stately home set against a flowing stream where swans wade beneath a bridge that crosses over. The lid features the scene on either side and has a cow resting at the top, which makes the finial / handle. The base has a blue edge and a slotted rest for a butter knife (not included). This piece is so hard to find!! Perfect for any blue and white collection or your French or English Country kitchen!
