Butter pats appeared in the 19th century and were used to serve a single pat of butter
to each diner. Glass factory catalogs sometimes referred to them as 'Individual butters'. They were a common component of a china set until the early 20th century and
continued to be used in restaurants for some time afterward.   While there were a
lot of china butter pats, there are very few made in EAPG patterns.
We offer a few of them for sale here.

This is a very old EAPG pattern & again, this 3 1/4" diameter piece might have been a honey dish, but it would not have held much honey!  We think it is a butter pat.  $45

the edges.

TREE OF LIFE is a pattern made by several
early American glass factories. By the 'melon' shape
on these butter pats, we know they are products
of the Hobbs Brockunier Glass Co. ca. 1879.
They are teeny little bowls only 2 3/4" in diameter
with little bitty scallops on the top edge.
We have 2 @ $65 each.

We think these teeny little 16 petal flower Lacy pieces are either toy plates or butter pats.
They are, of course flint & lacy glass & rough. But at 2 3/4" in diameter, they are smaller than the usual cup plates. Their numbers are Lacy 042, Lacy SP283, and Lacy SP284.
Best guess at age is 1830s or maybe 40s. We did not pursue their Lee/Rose number.
They are $25 each.

These little bitty plates have the properties of those above minus the chips around the edges.  056 has one tiny edge flake.  They are 3" in diameter, Lee/Rose #166B - Midwest & scarce.
$42 each
