Butter Dish

Depicting St. Mary's Church, Benfleet

The dish in the photos below is believed to be a butter dish, however if you have any other ideas regarding its intended purpose or information regarding its age, please add a comment to this page.

The design of this dish is very similar to a ribbon plate shown elsewhere on this site. Do you know of any other items in existence with the same green coloured border and picture of St. Mary’s Church?

The ‘butter dish’ was kindly loaned to the Benfleet Community Archive by Terry Babbage to enable it to be photographed and the pictures added to the website.
