I have a butter dish (with clear cover) once I saw for sale at $450.

Thanks for the question, Judy! As you've noted, the prices for Fire King Jadite have decreased substantially in the past decade. Typical prices for a covered butter dish might be $60 to $100 and egg cups can be found for $12 to $18. The best pricing is on etsy (the listing prices are starting points and items often sell for less). Etsy seems reflective of the current market.

Let me know if I can be of further help. Again, thanks and please rate my professionalism using the 5-star system. It doesn't cost you more and is the sole way that JustAnswer recognizes experts.
