Domed Butter Dish
Such a great find - footed butter dish of a dark oxidized metal. The inside has a star pattern on the insert. Place ice under the insert and keep your butter perfect temperature.
The Dome has a stamped pattern which faintly reveals a sailboat and a geometric pattern. An ornate floral finial caps off the dome.
Not sure of the metal - silverplate over pewter perhaps. We didn't try to polish as we love the dark color and aged look.
The only marking is a "2" stamped into the bottom. Victorian piece.
