Olive Branch Butter Dish. A classic covered butter dish with a twisted loop handle. These butter dishes measure 4 inches tall and 5 by 9 inches wide. They fit both the standard and the longer European butters. The handle makes it easy to remove the top even if your fingers are buttery! Olive Branch pattern was inspired by trips through the olive groves of northen California. Their beautiful silvery green colors and the dusty gold colors of the grasses are a wonderful combination. The background wash of tumbleweed tan has the look of Italian marble.
