Antique Transferware Butter Pats Pair of Ridgways Naples Wreath And Mulberry Foliage
This is a pair of antique transfer or transferware butter chips, butter pats or small butter plates.
The first is by Ridgways, England from 1900-1910 in a pattern called The Naples Wreath measuring 3.25 inches in diameter and is made of semi porcelain with a polychrome transfer garland and swag design.
The butter pat is in very good ++ condition with no chips or cracks but does have an area of discoloration resulting from kiln dist and heat during the manufacturing process.
The second is a mulberry transfer or transferware butter pat made in the 1890s with a mark that I can't identify. The ironstone butter pat has the name Catherine Mer...and I can't read the rest.
I don't know if it is a pattern name or manufacturer. The British Registry date for the pattern is 1894.
The butter pat measures 3 inches in diameter and is made of embossed ironstone with a foliate mulberry transfer border pattern.
The butter pat, which makes a wonderful teabag caddy now, is in very good +++ condition with no chips or cracks but does have 2 tiny utensil marks from use.
A great decorative and useful pair of antique butter pats.
