This butter dish belonged to my great grandmother...inside it had a note simply saying "Croesus". A little research revealed it was from the Riverside Glass company in W.Va whom were only in business from 1897-1901. My mom's only comment was don't sell it, it has been passed several times through the family.
This was another piece she brought--I have not researched it yet, I think it may be mid century Italian, but if any of my blogger friends know I would appreciate your wisdom. Mom's comment on this piece was that it was among her mother's things and it could have came from a thrift store for all she knew. I think it is a lovely funky piece!
