SylvaC Pottery (England) 'Nuleef' #2557 Butter Dish (or Cheese Dome) *RARE FIND*
Shaw & Copestake (aka SylvaC), a factory established by William Shaw and William Copestake in 1894, was given the name Shaw & Copestake. However, William Copestake quit the company midway through the first year allowing Mr. Richard Hull to become William Shaw’s business partner in 1895.
SylvaC is most renowned for its ornate molded clay products, including animals, vases, jugs, and wall pockets. The styling of several SylvaC goods is distinctively Victorian/early twentieth century while being made during the Art Deco period.
Many of their earlier pieces are high sought-after and collectible, including their range of jardinieres, planters and vases.

Model: 'Nuleef' #2557 Butter Dish (or Cheese Dome)
Great vintage condition however does display some very light crazing mainly visible on the base, as well as one small glaze flake which we've tried to capture via the pictures (it's very small!)
Measures approx 11.5cm tall x 23.5cm long x 18/5cm wide.
Based on the backstamp we can date this to the early 1950s.
