Wedgwood (England) 'Vine' Butter Dish with Lid | Vintage English Majolica, Circa 1950s *RARE FIND*
The Wedgwood story began in 1759 when the founder, Josiah Wedgwood started as an independent potter in Burslem, England. Fast forward over 260 years and they’re still producing many of the materials he invented, such as Jasper, Queen’s Ware and Black Basalt.
Wedgwood began producing majolica ware in the late 1800s, after Minton & Co produced the first pieces in 1851. Many examples of their majolica emphasise the low relief patterning, typically of basketwork and foliage, with the cabbage design being one of their most popular and desirable.

Model: Butter Dish with Lid
Condition: We would have actually said this was in excellent vintage condition, however the dome lid does have a hairline crack. Otherwise it is free from any other flaws. Regardless, still very usable or would look lovely in a majolica display.
Based on the backstamp we can tell this piece was produced in 1957.
