Vases & Bouquet Holders

Item Number:  BX-01
Approximate Size:  5½” L – 2¼” W – 1½” H
Production Dates:  1940-1948 as Flower Box; 1940-1983 as Oblong Butter Cover

The Flower Box is actually the same piece as the Oblong Butter Cover.  Fostoria simply described it as two separate pieces, each with a different use.  When it was displayed as a Flower Box, it was classified under the “Vases” category.  It was only described and shown as a Flower Box for a few years; thereafter, it was eliminated from the catalogs.  The Oblong Butter Cover; however, continued to be in production through 1983.

As an eBay Partner, I may be compensated if you make a purchase on eBay.  The following link shows available Flower Boxes on eBay. I used the term “oblong butter cover” in the search terms as very few people describe this item as a Flower Box.
