VERY RARE Figural Cow Topped BUTTER Tub / Dish Charlotte Red Transferware
Brand Crown Devon
For consideration is this absolutely darling, and hard to find, lidded butter tub by Royal Crownford with a resting cow on top. It reads BUTTER across the front in raised letters. It is adorned with a red transfer depicting a Victorian style basket of roses and freshly cut flowers on each side of the box and over the top of the cow on the lid. These are very hard to find. Perfect for your cottage kitchen or a wonderful addition to your transfer ware collection!
Measures: 4 1/2" across x almost 4 1/2" high with lid on (to top of cow)
Condtion: Very good with only a little crazing and a few stains present. underside of lid has a small crack or sliver that was repaired. It only shows if you lift the lid off and turn it over.
