During the long life of the Fostoria American pattern, there was always at least one Butter Dish in production. The Round Butter and Cover was in the initial 1915 catalog that introduced the American pattern. Around twenty-five years later, the Oblong Butter and Cover was born and was in production until Fostoria Glass Company closed its factory doors. There were many years when both Butter Dishes were in production at the same time; however, the Round Butter and Cover was the first to be introduced – and the first to be discontinued.
The following list is short, but complete. Fostoria Glass only made two butter dishes in the American line. There obviously are other serving pieces that could also be used for serving butter; however, these are the two covered containers that Fostoria considered their Butter & Covers.
