ANTIQUE SILVER BUTTER DISHES

The earliest English silver butter dishes were called butter shells, modelled to resemble scallop shells, are were produced from the beginning of the 18th Century. During the 19th Century smaller dishes, sometimes covered, were produced for butter, with earlier examples being round in form as this was the common shape that homemade butter was produced in. Silver butter dishes are extremely popular household items today, as they allow the butter to be kept at the optimal temperature for use.
