Cover the Butter
A stick of oleo will fit on the plate of this covered butter dish, but, doesn't look nearly as nice as those formed pieces of homemade butter that my G'ma Hanle would have placed on it ! When my Aunt Bertha and Uncle Lyle were moving to Indiana from Ohio sometime in the 80's, my Mom went to Ohio to help them sort through some of G'ma and G'pa's belongings. They had a small barn full of stored "artifacts" and Mom came back to Iowa with a truckload of things that were memorable to her. This pressed glass butter dish was one of those items. I keep it handy in the kitchen cabinets and use it regularly. It was another one of those "Can I have this, Mom?" things, and as usual, she didn't say "No" !
