Today we're shipping orders for in-stock items placed October 5. Our Hampton showroom is temporarily closed. Despite high order volume, our amazing shipping team is rapidly reducing processing times—we’ve recently added 17 new team members! We greatly appreciate your business and we’re doing our very best to serve you, as Jim C. of California tells. A word to the wise: Because resupply of many product lines remains daunting, and processing times may grow again in coming weeks, there’s never been a year like this to do your Christmas shopping and other year-end buying very early!

Butter Bell Antique Collection

Each crock from the Antique Collection is made with durable, weighty, new bone china. The crocks are decorated with a timeless scrolling vine design, reminiscent of French vineyards. The Antique Collection has an array of colors, distressed to make the crock look like a well-loved heirloom. These Butter Bell Antique Collection crocks measure a convenient 4” x 4” so they will take little space on a counter or tabletop. Holds a full stick (1/2 cup) of butter.

  • “In a word: Perfect. Perfect ordering, shipping and delivery. Nothing could be improved on for my experience. Thank you so much.”

    – Randy B., NC

Butter left open on the countertop won't keep long... and when refrigerated it tears nasty holes in your bread. Happily, there's a third way—the Butter Bell® butter keeper. What butter needs to remain fresh isn't cold temperature, but protection from the oxygen in air. Using a forgotten, centuries-old technique, the Butter Bell keeps your butter soft and fresh right on the counter for up to a month!

Just pour an inch of water in the base, pack the porcelain ceramic butter crock with butter, and invert it in the base. The water seals out air, keeping your butter soft, sweet & fresh for up to 30 days. If you're anything like us, you might be thinking something along the lines of "Fresh butter on the counter... for weeks... oh sure..." Yep, we were skeptical too. But we tried it... and it works wonderfully!

The only maintenance required is to change the water every third day. You'll soon be recommending Butter Bell butter keepers to your friends. Pleasant Hill Grain offers Butter Bells in an array of exquisite styles & colors to complement your kitchen!

For more details please see the specs tab, above.

(See the Butter Bell brand page here for the full range of styles.)

    I'm so happy with my Butter Bell that I am buying one for each of my five sisters and a couple of my aunts. I enjoy Pleasant Hill Grain's products.

  • More than a butter keeper

    This is a piece of art! My kids love it and we love being able to put butter on our bread without ripping it to shreds. Butter is fresh and it's easy to clean. Highly recommended!

    Have used butter bells for years. This product is excellent quality. The Vert color is beautiful on the counter or table.

  • We love our new Butter Bell. It is a very pretty vintage sea spray color.

    We always wanted a Butter Bell but never liked the plain Jane ones that were available locally. And I never thought I would purchase one from online. Pleasant Hill Grain had several styles and sizes to choose from. In the same order I accidentally ordered a wrong brand of accessory for our dehydrator. We received a phone call from a sales associate who had caught my mistake and cared enough to call us about it. I wish I remembered her name for this review, I told her how nice it was someone was considerate enough to check and spot my mistake before the order was placed. I explained how much I appreciated their service. Insert smiley face.

  • Nice gift
    By on - Verified Buyer
    My mom loved her gift and tried it while I visited her. Worked well! My only negative was that I had to pay shipping cost which I'm not used to doing in this day and age.

    I have sent several butter bells for gifts and they, in turn, have also bought them for their friends. This is my second one as my first of many years broke. The choices are many. Thanks for your product!!
