Vintage Silverplate Cunard Line Butter Dish

Vintage Silverplate Cunard Line Butter Dish

$250.00

Cunard Line. The very name conjures up images of the glamorous days of steamship travel.  Founded in 1839 by Samuel Cunard, the company was established primarily to carry the Royal Mail to and from Canada and the United States.  From those simple beginnings, with no cargo other than mail and no non-governmental passengers, Cunard went on to build some of the largest, fastest, most luxurious ships to ever sail the seven seas. 

Since its beginning, Cunard has operated the most famous oceanliners in the world and during the peaceful years before the first World War, the company was the dominant player in the prestigious transatlantic service. Her ships were fast, majestic and offered anything the discerning passenger could possibly want - they were the epitome of "floating palaces".

Before World War I, Cunard Line's fleet included the "grand trio" of palatial liners, the RMS Mauretania, the RMS Lusitania, and the RMS Aquitania. All three ships were beloved by passengers, with the Aquitana even being dubbed "Ship Beautiful".

Rich in history and splendor, we are pleased to have found a shining example of the exceptional dining service aboard Cunard's majestic ships: a gleaming Silverplated Butter Dish with all the elegance of the Cunard fleet. With handsome Art Deco styling, the butter dish consists of a bottom dish that would have been filled with chipped ice and a beautifully pierced top tray that would have held sliced butter or decorative butter curls. Both pieces are stamped with Cunard's regal rampant lion and crown crest.

With a provenance filled with romance and adventure, this beautiful butter dish promises to make a most handsome addition to your beloved silver collection.


Strictly one of a kind and subject to prior sale. Circa 1930s. In very good restored vintage condition with discreet signs of age and use on the interior of the bottom dish as shown in the alternate images. Butter Dish measures 1 1/4"H x 4"D, 5 1/8" including side handles.
