This is a lovely French, handmade, ceramic butter cloche - very charming and rustic.
The lid of the dish has been scored with the word 'Beurre' (butter) and a 'single thistle' motif, before firing, which is stylishly understated and simply elegant.
Perfect for any rustic farmhouse or country cottage kitchen. It would look fabulous on any French dresser or wooden table.
The base saucer measures 19.5cms (7 ½") diameter and has a curved edge to hold the cloche lid in place. The domed lid is 17.5cms (6 ¾") diameter (at the base) and the whole thing stands 10cms (4") tall (to the knob).
The cloche lid is 7mm (¼") thick, so that it will keep the butter cool even on the hottest of days.
It weighs 1.1kgs (2.4lbs)
It is in perfect condition, with no chips, cracks or scratches. It has been glazed in two layers, the light grey 'speckled' wash glaze effect, over a darker brown glaze to pick out the writing and motif. It has gorgeous 'hints' of subtle blue, golden yellow and green to pick out the thistle. It is signed 'Fait Main (hand made) '80' on the inside of the dome.
