We switched back to real butter in our house, for a variety of reasons I won't bore you with. The end result being, now that our spread didn't come in a tub, we needed a butter dish. I'm of the belief that no detail is too small in our atomic ranch, so I went on a search for the right mid-century modern butter dish.
I put a spending limit of $10 on myself, because, it's a butter dish, not something that I'm going to proudly display on my mantel. That's when I found out that butter dishes fall into three categories: white, clear and expensive. I was going to just get a standard white butter dish and forget all the silliness but then West Elm put their owl butter dish on sale. So I got the yellow one.
I think it'll make a nice addition to the kitchen and fit the mid-century modern look we're going for.
There were a few other butter dish contenders:The Buddah butter dish
And the cow butter dish
I think any of these butter dishes could fit nicely into a mid-century modern kitchen.
