It's what's known as a Butter Bell- you cram the butter in the lid, put a small amount of water in the "bell" then you put the lid over it- keeps butter fresh at room temperature for days- no need to refrigerate it. Don't laugh- I was raised around this very butter bell. A gift from mom's closet. She was going to goodwill it! Nooooooo! I said I would take it!
