What a unique item, this set of 4 silverplate butterpats or drink coasters from Sweden is! Butterpat dishes are diminutive plates that have been seen on the tables of royalty and presidents, as well as in the homes of fine china lovers everywhere.

No table was properly set during the Victorian era without small butter dishes. The Victorians loved excess–in the decoration of their homes and clothing accessories–and no where is this more exemplified than in the place settings of the 19th century dining table. During the age of elegance each category of food required a separate piece of china or silver. Formal Victorian tables were set with a serving of bread, consumed without butter, hidden in the folds of each guest’s linen serviette. If a course required buttering, the servants placed individual miniature plates, approximately three inches in diameter, above and slightly to the left of center of the service plates.

Dimensions and Details: These are ornate engraved pieces that feature grapes and ivy. Each butterpat dish measures 3.25 inches in diameter and weighs about 1 oz. They are stamped AB Segerstrom & Svensson Eskilstuna Sweden.

They all have an antique patina, but are in great condition as is, or if you want them to shine you can do so!

Purchase with a set of embroidered napkins or tea towels for an extra special touch and gift! Enjoy and make them a part of your FAMILY TRADITIONS.
