Ultra rare Pyrex reverse misprint Amish Butterprint butter dish-- the lady is on the left and the farmer is on the right, whereas the standard print shows the lady on the right and farmer on the left. The very rare Cloverberry, Duchess, and Blue Dianthus are more commonly seen than the Butterprint reverse-misprint butter dish.
The last picture compares the standard print butter dish against the reverse misprint butter dish. While there is a known and extremely rare example of Pyrex covered butter dish upon which the position of the farmer and the wife are reversed, the phenomenon is also seen occasionally on Butterprint Cinderella 441 bowls and 403 round nesting bowls. The farmer is normally depicted to the left of the wife. That the printing screen could be reversed on the bowls is plausible; how the butter dish pattern came to differ is uncertain, as its decoration is not symmetrical. Excellent condition with light signs of use & wear.
No cracks; one very small, smooth flake-chip on the underside rim of the lid, shown in the 3rd picture-- it's hard to see but can be felt. The pattern is shiny and nicely intact with very light wear-- note a small mark on the far left wheat. Pic #10 shows a backlit view of the pattern, aka "light test".
There are some of the era-typical production goofs that are common of vintage Pyrex, such as mold flaws, bumps, or indents; straw marks or swirls in the glass; inconsistencies in color & pattern; etc. These are normal and should be expected. Beautiful, clean, and ready for display.Good faith efforts for accurate photography and description. I'm happy to send more pictures or info-- just ask!
