Found this at a local thrift...looked funky and priced right. At first,
I thought it was a serving dish of some kind but under closer examination
I believe it could be quite old.
Hopefully, someone can help me identify what it's for.
Looks like some type of alloy and hand made.
3 legs 7"inches wide
Please advise if extras are needed
It looks really interesting. Could you please share a photo of the entire piece? The detailed pictures are very helpful, but I would like to see what it actually looks like WHOLE ;) Thanks
Wait! I think I have figured it out now.
Yep, Molly's got it! It's a vintage Butter dish. The flip-top style was really popular during the 1920 - 1930's art deco era, I've sold a few of those in the past. Does yours have the glass insert?
It should have a little glass dish, that sits inside. The work on yours is kinda crude, so I'd guess it to be 1960-70's India Brass. Cool way to keep your butter bug free this summer! :)
