Satisfy your discriminating taste with this lovely speckled teal French butter crock or dish. It was wheel thrown out of a red stoneware clay then the border design was hand carved and impressed into it. The design was very lightly glazed to make it stand out on the lid and sides.. Besides looking decorative on you table, it will enable you to always have soft spreadable butter or margarine as the crock keeps your spread soft and fresh at room temperature.

To use, you pack semi softened butter into the lid piece. Put a little water in the bottom and add a little salt to keep it fresh. When the lid is in place a seal is made in the water keeping out the air that can turn the butter rancid. You should change the water every day or two.

It is dishwasher, oven, and microwave safe and measures about 3 7/8 inches tall by 4 3/4 inches wide. The lid will hold 2 sticks or 1/2 lb of butter.

Note that the glaze has just started to want to run over the design on the sides and it did run a bit on the cone that holds the butter inside such that the rim is no longer flat but a bit thick and wavy. This does not affect its function but I have reduced the price of the dish slightly, to the level of a less time consuming design, because of it.
