Embossed Porcelain Butter Dish
+ $ shipping surcharge
The keeper of our dreams.
Designed with delicate ridges and an unglazed midsection for non-slip gripping, this blue-tinted butter dish keeps butter however you like it: out on the table and always soft, or ready to to melt slowly, in square pats right from the fridge. The faint orange blush at the edge of the glazing is what potters call "a kiss from the kiln gods," and we think it's the sultriest of special effects.
