Each crock from the Fleur de Provence collection is made with durable, weighty, new bone china. The crocks feature a signature floral pattern carefully etched into the glaze so the natural color of the clay shows through. The English word “Butter” is etched on one side, while the French word for butter – “Beurre” is etched on the opposite side. These Fleur de Provence Collection crocks measure a convenient 4” x 4” so they'll take little space on a counter or tabletop. Holds a full stick (1/2 cup) of butter.

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!
