These cheerful dishes will brighten up your table; use for butter (2 different shapes, perhaps); I don't know if the covered dish is ornamental or utilitarian. I received an email, telling me the covered dish is called a "cheese lady" and comes in different sizes, and is used to put cut cheese in. They are primarily blue & white; the rectangular dish has a pansy on it, and the covered/handled dish set has tiny flowers. These were made in Poland. The rectangular dish is 5"x6 3/4", the small bottom dish is 3 3/4" across and its handled cover stands 3 1/2" when in place. Please email me with any questions you may have, and thank-you for shopping here at Something Wonderful.
