Butter Dishes

Butter comes in a multitude of sizes and shapes differing from one side of the continent to the other.  While I havent made a butter dish for every single shape of stick, I do have a few different styles including the French butter dish.

Blue handmade French butter dishes

This is a French butter dish.  The insert holds the buttter and the outer cup is partially filled with water which will create an airlock when the insert is in place.  This keeps the butter from becoming rancid when sitting at room temperature.
