Everyone needs a beautiful Butter Dish, this pattern is called Models Gem 1893-1902 by the Model Flint Glass Co.
Around 1870, when Early American Pattern Glas...s was first made, just about everyone churned their own butter. Making butter was hard work because it was hand churned. The cream was skimmed off the fresh milk and churned until the yellow fat separated from the buttermilk and stuck together in chunks. Some of the butter was molded in a press and the butter was then stored in the EAPG butter dish on the table. Check out the other beautiful Butter Dishes at www.reuzeitmn.com
