This is the reverse of the advert.

Although dairy produce was available all year round, it was scarce in Winter and was more expensive at this time of year. Milk was sold wholesale for about 5d a gallon (2p) but in winter the price rose to 10d (4p). Making butters varied across the country, according to the traditions of a particular area. Cheap butter was made from sour cream and it was only top quality butter that was produced from milk. Equipment like ‘Hancock’s butter machine’ would have made the churning process much easier and much faster.
