Up for auction is a RARE butter dish made by homer laughlin in the 1930's in the blue bird pattern. The edges of this one are not scalloped, but trimmed in gold flowers and vines. The lid appears to be in mint condition with no problems to speak of but unfortunately, I can't say the same for the bottom dish. The decals look wonderful, but glaze is crackled (not discolored), and t is a repaired crack more than three quarters across it. I could probably bleach the crack and repair it better with rock hard wood putty, but I will leave that to the buyer. The back is stamped Homer Laughlin, Made in USA, K5N. Thank you for looking and please see my other auctions!
