    Description

    George Washington: EAPG Horn of Plenty Butter Dish. Washington appears on the finial or knob of the cover to this rare two-piece butter dish. The pressed design consists of swirling patterns of stars and a circle, representing a horn of plenty. It is plate #47 in Rose & Lee and plate #205 in McKearin. Unfortunately, a large segment of the cover broke off at one time and has been neatly re-glued. Still, it is a very rare piece and seldom appears in the market. We located a sale in 2002 of an undamaged example for $2,600. It is subject to third party shipping charges.
