* A UNIQUE COLLECTIBLE: KEEPS BUTTER FRESH AT ROOM TEMPERATURE *

A butter bell (also commonly called a butter crock or butter keeper) comes in two pieces:
a cone or cup shaped container with a non-removable, saucer-like base, and a larger cup --
both are usually made of ceramic.

Your butter is placed in the smaller cone/cup (it's best to use soft, but not too soft/melty,
butter when adding it), and cold water is placed in the larger cup. The butter cone is then
placed, butter side down into the cup containing the water.

Until you get used to using it, you should do this step over the sink, as water may overflow out.

After a few goes, you'll figure out just how much water you need by sight, but to be clear… the
butter should touch the water. What you're doing is preventing any air from coming into contact
with the surface of the butter, effectively sealing it off from the air and preventing spoilage.

* PRICED TO SELL, below e-bay values with shipping * PERFECT VINTAGE CONDITION
