S/4636 Antique Treen 19th Century Masur Birch Butter Bowl
A most attractive masur birch butter bowl, having a fitted lid with a raised central knob handle, held between two raised supports and a sliding fixing catch plate. The base, of angled bucket form, has three bands of reeded decoration. The whole has a lovely honey colour and patination, with lovely markings as often found in masur birch. It is a most desirable item. The sliding catch has been replaced at a later date.
