Distillerie Buton Decanter

Digger Odell Publications ©2007

Engraved on the bottom is : DISTILLERIE BUTON Bologna Italia Casa Fond. Nel 1820 Argenterie G. Galbiati Miiland They have a sticker on the front saying" Buton, Mandarino, product of Italy, Gr, 34. These silver plated decanter are not antique and were made for the collectible market. The unsuspecting might buy one thinking it was actually cut glass with silver top and base made in 1820, the date found stamped on the base. the Italian word "fondata" means founded. My guess is they were made in the 1960-1970s. Examples have been found all over the world. They are very common. Their value empty is limited and probably something you might find marked in a thrift store for $10-15.

The bottle was not made anywhere near 1820 or even 1920.  The patent office shows a registration for the word mark, BUTON Goods and Services : Brandy, Aperitif Wine, and Liqueurs. FIRST USE: 1963. FIRST USE IN COMMERCE: 1963.  (REGISTRANT) Gio. Buton & C. S.P.A. CORPORATION ITALY Viale Angelo Masini 24 Bologna ITALY. (LAST LISTED OWNER) MONTENEGRO S.P.A. CORPORATION ITALY VIA E. FERMI n. 4 ZOLA PREDOSA (BO) ITALY 40069.  The earliest date this was produced would have been 1963. (See November 2002 Questions for a picture of the label)
