This spring, in about a two week timespan, I was lucky enough to snag three butterpats on Ebay, all from sellers in the United States. This was the first time I've ever added a butterpat to my collection, and it must have been either luck or divine intervention that allowed me to find them.
All three are from businesses that are already represented in my collection. I previously got a Commercial Hotel creamer a year or so ago, and I have a variety of Hotel Cranbrook ones, but the Leonard's Cafe butterpat is a new pattern for me. I've so far found three different patterns which feature a dog on them, but in all my research attempts into the owners of the business, I've not been able to figure out why a dog would feature so prominantly on their dishware. I thought that I composed a separate entry for the Commercial Hotel already, but I guess not! Look for it in the next week or so.
