Isn't this a great treasure?
I couldn't believe my luck when I saw it at a yard sale.
I knew I had to have it.
When hubby asked me what it was, I confessed that I didn't know.
We both agreed it was too small for a stick of butter,
but I thought it could hold an individual pat.
I remember when my debutante cousin was married,
I was allowed to see the gift tables.
I still remember the table that was set with her china, crystal, and silver.
There were individual salt cellars.
Why not individual butter dishes?
While I don't remember seeing these,
I imagine she must have had a service for 12.
I looked on ebay but couldn't find anything that matched my treasure.
I'm sure you can think of ways I can use this charming piece of silver.
Please excuse the quality of my pictures.
I haven't been able to fix my camera yet.
While I wasn't able to meet up with any other "thrifty bloggers",
I am happy to link this with Rhoda.
