I received the "one of a kind" blue French butter dish
in early October, so I've been using it for about 2
months. It replaced a "big box" version, which had a
cup-shaped butter holder. We live in California, so we
keep the butter dish in the fridge and, with the other
butter, I often found the hardened butter floating in
the water, instead of being held in the cup. However,
after 2 months of constant use, this has never happened
with your dish, presumably because of the (more
sensible) "inverted cone" design. Your dish was a little
larger than I expected (it can hold about 6 oz of my
favorite butter) and, when it arrived, my wife thought
it might look a little out-of-place on our table.
However, she was won over by the beautiful colors &
design, and it's now in pride of place whenever we eat.
Great product, great shipping, thank you! Lindsay
