This is one of my favorite items! It's a sweet glass butter dish with Butter written in an old-fashioned script. It has a base and a lid and it measures 6 1/2" L x 4" W x 3 1/2"H. If you like your butter soft -out on the counter, this is a great way to keep it. And you're probably asking, "Does anyone use butter any more?". Oh Yes. We bake with real butter and use it in moderation. I much rather have a little of the real thing then more of the stuff loaded with unhealthy ingredients.
