This could be a berry drainer, sponge drainer or butter dish. I have seen this type of dish described as all of these. Actually whatever you want to use it as that is what it is!! It has a cream background with purple and yellow flowers on long wispy teal green leaves as decorations. In between the flowers and leaves is mauve colored sections. . The inside has a separate drainer that can be removed. The pieces have gold rims which show some wear. The lids gold rim is almost completely gone but doesn't distract from the beauty of this piece. IT IS RARE TO FIND FAIENCE IN "LIKE NEW" CONDITION BECAUSE OF WEAR FROM USE AND AGE. TINY GLAZE FLAKES AND CRAZING IS NORMAL AND ADDS CHARACTER TO EACH PIECE.
