Antique 19th Century Tiffany & Co. Silver Soldered Three Piece Butter Dish
This Tiffany & Co. three-piece butter dish is truly a unique treasure! When thinking of Tiffany, it's usually masterfully crafted jewelry, stained glass lamps, or Audrey Hepburn that come to mind. Tiffany & Co. began in the early 1800s as a luxury goods company that sought to reinvent design to focus more on the natural world. In 1867, Charles Lewis Tiffany won the grand prize at the Paris World's Fair for silver craftsmanship. Every piece that was produced by this company is remarkably made and designed to transcend time. Though one may no longer choose to use this as a butter dish, it would work perfectly to store some special pieces from your jewelry collection!
The butter would sit in the perforated liner that rests above the belly which would contain ice to chill the butter.
