This cream carafe is an interesting container and a fun one to paint and display. I have painted a number of designs for this piece. The cream carafe measures 5 ¼” in diameter x 7 ½” tall and is turned out of poplar.
The container I helped design and had made after seeing many similar used on tables in Norway to hold their commercial containers of sour cream. We designed this one to fit most of our US sour cream, yogurt, butter or cottage containers, products of cream or dairy products. Theirs did not have a lid, but I thought it would look more interesting and be more useful this way.
I love painting this cute piece and have painted a number of designs with different styles found under "Cream Carafes". There is a Telemark design including a landscape.
