Anchor butter wrapper. Plain sheet of paper measuring 27 x 18.8cm with red and blue label. There are basically four sections to this label. The main central section bears the following text in red and blue: "UNSALTED Anchor NEW ZEALAND CREAMERY BUTTER 1 lb NET (454g)". Three small anchors accompany this text. The remainder of the text is in Arabic. A small white adhesive label on wrapper bears the following text: "Dubai Muscat". The butter was probably exported to here. The following text is printed top right corner (upside down when viewed flat): "PRODUCED AND EXPORTED BY NEW ZEALAND DAIRY BOARD WELLINGTON NEW ZEALAND".
