Cow Butter Dish


Product is in stock

Origin: Portugal
SKU: DC0126


The cow butter dish keeps your butter safely under cover. The lid of the dish is shaped like a grassy hill, with a black-and-white dairy cow resting atop it. The cow not only guards your butter, but also serves as a handle.

The cow butter dish is made by the highly collectible Portuguese ceramics studio, Bordallo Pinheiro. Every dish is hand-painted, so no two are ever exactly alike.

The Portuguese ceramics studio, Bordallo Pinheiro, was set up in 1884. Brothers Raphael and Feliciano Bordallo Pinheiro started the venture, and many of the pieces today are still made to Raphael’s designs. In only twenty-one years, Bordallo Pinheiro’s bold, artistic ceramics gained international recognition. Raphael took inspiration from the flora and fauna around his home town of Caldas, as well as drawing on ideas from the Renaissance and from the Art Nouveau & Naturalism movements.
