Rare French Antique Porcelain Butter Keeper, Butter Crock, Butter Cooler, Traditional Butter Storage

Complete your French-inspired breakfast table with this elegant white porcelain butter keeper with a fluted body and dainty gold trim. 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. This will create an airtight seal allowing the butter to remain cool and fresh at room temperature. 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. NO cracks, crazing or discoloration. There is one small shallow chip on the inner lip of the top portion. And the gold trim has worn away on the lid portion.
