Rare French Antique Saint Uze Stoneware Butter Keeper, Large Butter Crock, Butter Cooler, Traditional Butter Storage
Complete your french inspired breakfast table with this beautiful, classic, Saint Uze, stoneware butter keeper. A beautiful ecru stoneware base adorned with dark blue art deco stamped motifs.
If you are like most you love to have spreadable butter at the ready for your morning baguette. This is the answer. Just fill the bell compactly with your favorite butter, fill the base vessel to the brim with cold water, and displace the water by gently submerging the bell until firmly sealed, repeat each time when not in use. This will create an airtight seal allowing the butter to remain cool and fresh at room temperature. This large size could be great for a breakfast-loving family. This beauty could probably hold about 3 standard sticks of butter. Butter keepers were common in most households before the invention of the fridge to keep butter fresh.
This stunning piece is in beautiful antique condition, with NO chips or discoloration. There is one tiny hair on the edge of the interior top portion and some crazing in the glaze. ( See photos for details).
