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.
