turk2My recent posting about my family’s heirloom Turkey Platter got me to thinking about purchasing new Thanksgiving related tableware to start a new tradition.

I saw this Thanksgiving butter dish and accompanying salt and pepper shakers on Gump’s website and think I have found just what I need.

Gump’s is San Francisco ’s landmark purveyor of finer things, and I just fell in love with these items described as such: “Bring more than one turkey to your harvest table. Displaying the iconic turkey gobbler, our covered butter dish and salt and pepper shakers are fashioned from earthenware with embossed details, then glazed in warm autumn shades.”

I hope to hear my great niece or nephew one day say “we have the butter dish so I guess we are stuck hosting Thanksgiving dinner.”
