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!  

Condition:  No chips or cracks, looks to have rarely, if ever, been used

Holds a standard stick of butter
