This polka dot butter bell is marked as 'sale' beacuse of superficial glaze damage during firing to the top of bell. The piece itself is in good working order. Holds 1 cup (2 sticks) of butter.
Butter bells function by placing fresh butter in the 'bell' portion of the peice and clean water in the bottom of the cylinder. This creates a water seal and keeps butter fresh and spreadable! No need to refridgerate unless temperatures in the house exceed 85 degrees fahrenheit.
This piece is dishwasher safe but your ceramic pieces will last longer if you hand wash them!
