For a long while I have been coveting a glass butter dish. I like making my own butter, however storage and presentation can be a bit of a dilemma. Rather than putting your lovely fresh butter in a plastic container, why not keep it in a more attractive (and greener) holder, right?
I had been watching various items on Ebay and ducking into second-hand shops wherever I went, but was drawing a blank on finding the one I wanted at a price I could live with.
So, when we visited the Penguin Markets last weekend, you could possibly imagine how excited I was to see this:
But then there was also this:
The provenance of this dish is probably also quite undistinguished but I just liked the relief work on the lid showing a cow complete with bell standing in a field of grass.
Anyway, I got both of these for less than I could have bought just the green one on Ebay or similar and no postage. So I was a happy shopper.
