This wonderful old clay vessel is in fact an antique butter cooler.
After the hard work of churning the butter would be placed inside to cool and set.
The saucer sits underneath, and the dome at the top has a reservoir at the top which could be filled with cool water.
Please note that the saucer does have a chip missing.
A wonderful addition to a vintage or country styled home.
Measures approx: 28cm x 28cm x 28cm
