Store your butter on the counter in this attractive pottery Butter Crock. Pack up to a ½ pound of butter into the cone-shaped lid, then put water into the base so that it is about ⅓ full. When the inverted lid is on, a seal is created that keeps oxygen away from the butter. Enjoy room temperature, spreadable butter whenever you'd like. Features a Sgraffito design & measures 4½" wide by 3¼" high. Lead-free glaze. Proudly thrown in the USA.
