|The pictures show a top and bottom view of all (5) Small Old Porcelain Butter Pat Plates in this lot. There are two that match and three other different ones here. These are not dated but they are old. Most butter pat plates had been used in the late 1800s and early 1900s. Butter pats were usually part of a large china or dinnerware set. They were used at a time when store bought butter did not exist. Butter would be molded and stamped with a design and placed on these small individual serving plates. Between the thousands of designs that were made and their small size they have become an excellent collectible item. They also make a nice size plate for Victorian dolls.|
All of these plates are round. Each of these have a flower pattern or print and two of them have gold trim. To judge the sizes the bottom left one measure about 3-1/4'' wide. Most of these appear to be in very good condition as pictured. They have some age crazing. One of these is marked as follows:
