This silver plated covered butter dish was made by Simpson, Hall, Miller & Co of Wallingford, Connecticut sometime around 1880. Nice band of decoration around the midsection and the handles and arms for the knife rests are all intact. The lid opens to reveal a pierced dish that lifts out to accommodate ice, which would keep the pats of butter cold.

Measures 9 3/4 inches high, about 7 3/4 inches across the handles and 5 3/4 inches diameter across the lid. Stamped marks on underside of dish.

Overall condition is good, with minor wear and scratches to the surface. I’ve left this tarnished because I like the dark color, but you could gently polish it to a high silvery shine.
