Convivio Rectangular Butter Cover - 16 cm - Handcrafted in Italy - Pewter
This striking, yet practical rectangular pewter butter cover, handcrafted in Italy, looks great over a plate or board, on a table or a kitchen countertop, complementing other members of the Convivio range, and promises the indulgence of the age-old golden smooth taste of gorgeous butter.
Butter has always symbolised good living, prosperity and wholesomeness across the millennia and across the planet, whether made from camel, water buffalo or cows milk. Butter is mentioned in the Bible, and is often described as a food fit for the Gods and as protection against evil spirits.
Butter storage has presented problems throughout history and differing climates, but one thing that has remained constant is the need to keep butter covered, whether that is packing it in barrels or crocks, or wrapping it in leaves or paper. Butter achieved luxury status by the 19th Century as a result of its cost and perishability, and therefore it had to be served in a vessel special enough to befit the honour of holding such revered culinary golden indulgence and status. The Cosi Tabellini Convivio butter cover combines both functional and aesthetic qualities.
