Capitol Butter Dish!

21 August 2012

Capitol Butter Dish from ODLCO on Vimeo.


I love this.
Some of you may remember my posts a few months back about the brilliant Wabi Nabe cast iron pot from Chicago design brand ODLCO. They’ve recently redesigned their site and launched their new product, the Capitol Butter dish, by Morgan Carter – just in time for the political season. Made of 100% white porcelain, it’s charming and stately – rather unlike anyone in political news at the moment.

Referencing the token building souvenirs you might find when visiting DC, but made with the attentive hand of a craftsman, the Capitol Butter Dish takes a stately presence on your table while serving the lowly job of butter dish. And, the front lawn performs dual service as a knife rest.
