Butter Dish with Lotus Flower on Black Field
Hand thrown porcelain butter dish. Each one is totally unique. This was designed so that you can cut the pound of butter in half and put it in the bottom. A black transfer of white lotus flowers on a black field of leaves is sealed on to the creamy white clay by a clear glaze. Nice lip to keep the butter contained. The knob is a lovely denim blue. Approximately 5" tall x 7" wide. Signed Sullivan Canada on the bottom.
As with all porcelain pottery avoid dramatic temperature changes; no oven, do not freeze. Dishwasher, microwave safe. Please appreciate the slight imperfections that make hand made pottery so great.
