Round Owl butter dish by Jeanne Jackson
A small domed and intricately decorated ceramic butter dish, topped with a hand modelled owl and partnered with a decorated under plate with baby owl. This piece will definitely provide a talking point in the kitchen. Using the Scraffito technique and her wide range of colourful glazes Jeanne Jackson has created a charming and original piece that measures approximately 16cm diameter (plate) by 14cm height.
