Amethyst red/blue ceramic French Butter Dish

French Butter Dishes originated in the Middle Ages as a way to store butter before refrigeration existed. They preserve your butter by creating an air tight seal, keeping it soft and fresh for up to a month without needing to be refrigerated.
To use, pack 1/4 pound (1 stick) of butter into the lid of the dish. Pour approxametly an inch of water into the base. enough water to cover the inverted lid. Oil and water do not mix so your butter will stay fresh and soft. When you place the lid onto the base, an air tight water seal is created, which prevents air from spoiling the butter. Dimensions, approximately 3 and 1/2 inches tall by 4 and 1/2 inches wide.

Because of the natural variations in the creating/forming of the clay artwork, and the high temp gas firing; not all glazes or pieces will look exactly the same, each one is unique.
