Antique Edwardian Butter Pat by John Maddock & Sons in Bombay Patter, Ideal Trinket or Pin Dish
A lovely example of a small Edwardian decorated butter pat made by John Maddock & Sons in the early 1900s.
This butter pat is in wonderful mint condition, with no chips, cracks or crazing. It is decorated in a teal coloured Bombay pattern, and finshed with gilt gold effect around the outside. The result is a highly decorative and pretty piece.
Originally used as a butter pat, for serving butter at the dinner table, it’s small size could serve a multitude of purposes. This Burslem ware dish could continue to be used as a butter dish but it could also be used as a trinket or pin dish, or also as a jewellery tray.
The teal green transfer print and gold edging is still exceptionally clear. The only signs of the age of the dish are on the back, where there are a number of age marks around the edge. There is also a small spec of a firing mark on the front.
