Antique ironstone oblong PURE BUTTER slab

Antique ironstone oblong PURE BUTTER slab

A rectangular antique white ironstone grocers slab, decorated along the front edge with black under-glaze 'Pure Butter' typography. Used by the turn of the century butcher & grocer before refrigeration, these slabs would have been left outside overnight to chill before being adorned with big blocks of dairy and fat, cut to order throughout the day and kept cool by the heavy white ironstone pottery.



39cm x 28.3cm x 5.7cm tall


In lovely, original 'as found' condition with a chip to the top edge, a small chip under the foot and a scrape under the letter 'E', also on the foot. Otherwise it displays very well, an affordable antique option to begin a collection or finish off your kitchen decor.

  • International customers and combined shipping

    International buyers (outside of the UK) - When you add an item to your cart you can select a shipping destination and the postage will be calculated. Usually this is correct, but for multiple purchases and larger items it is advisable to enquire before purchasing, as shipping is based on rough estimates to different regions and may vary to that stated. You may 'buy it now' with the shipping cost calculated, but if this is incorrect we may contact you after purchase. We will either issue a refund for the difference, or request for a remaining postage balance to be paid, either way we will always contact you before any changes are made. Our standard postage costs include tracking where possible and usually require a signature upon receipt, please also include a contact phone number when ordering. Postage to P.O. boxes must be enquired about before purchase as many shippers do not deliver to them. 

    *Multiple purchases - If you would like to purchase multiple items we can usually combine shipping. It is best to message us first for a shipping quote, but to avoid missing out you can purchase items through the website immediately without paying a shipping fee. Add the desired pieces to your cart, then view your cart and in order summary there is a drop down menu with postage options. Select *Multiple purchases & combined shipping* and the shipping price will be removed. You can now pay for your selected items and we will contact you with a shipping quote to then be paid separately.
