The butter dish is cast in porcelain.
The lid is hand-painted on the outside, is sanded and left unglazed exposing the quality of the coloured clay and giving it a lovely, tactile quality. It is glazed on the inside. The plate is hand-painted and finished with a clear shiny glaze.
This butter dish is perfect for a slice from a standard pound of butter.
Dishwasher and microwave safe.
