I found a Vanwall butter dish today at an Antique Fair and did some Googling to find more information.  Apparently the NZ International Grand Prix was held at Ardmore from 1954 to 1962 then it moved to Pukekohe for a couple of years.  Other dishes have BRM, Aston Marton, Cooper, Maserati, Lotus as well as this Vanwall one.

Thanks Sharon as with Gerda's this makes 4 different ones.
I feel that there will be two more and it's not like you see them every day is it?

A McKenzies advert from 1960 shows that there were six different dishes.
They were called Souvenir Dishes and are the size of Butter Dishes.
B.R.M, Maserati, Cooper, Lotus, Ferrari and Bristol.
