Here's a question from reader L.:
I've been searching for replacement glass liners for a rectangular covered silver butter dish forever, but haven't had any luck. Do you know where I can find them?
That's a tricky question, L.! We think your best bet is Replacements.com, a repository of pretty much every china pattern and silver set known to man. You can see one possible replacement here:
• 1/4 Pound Butter Liner
The only problem is that you have to ask them for a quote and often these come back astronomically high. If you are very keen on finding just the right replacement, we would recommend going this route, though.
If you don't mind a different yet similar liner, we would recommend buying a whole new set and using the new glass liner. You can use the leftover butter dish for decoration or serving small condiments and nuts. This may be a much more economical route. Also try checking at thrift stores and flea markets.
Good luck! Any more reader ideas for L.?
