Product search - butter pot/beurrier

Last year or the year before, I bought four individual-sized butter pots for my mother for Xmas and now I can't find them again to buy more. I'm looking for round, white, ceramic pots, probably about 2.5 - 3 inches across. I've been to Le Soupier (sp?) across from the Faubourg Ste-Catherine and a new place on de Maisonneuve and Peel (I think) and had no luck. Any advice?

      Great, thanks! I will definitely check there.

        I remember seeing them at Dante. But, 2.5 - 3 inches across, are you sure those are individual portions?

          Well, I just meant as opposed to a beurrier that was 4-5 inches across, which seems to be more for use as a butter dish, i.e. that's how you normally store your butter. What I'm looking for are the ones my mother would use for a nicer dinner party, and I think she currently puts out one butter pot per two people (since I only gave her four originally).

    2. Depr├Ęs-Laporte in Laval has a large selection of little individual serving containers. I would look there.

      1. William Ashley in Toronto has the small Emile Henry beurriers. I was there just before Xmas and saw them... I was looking for a large one, but they were sold out; all they had was the small ones.

        1. might want to look at ares (west island, laval or longueuil) im sure they have what you're looking for

            The OP was looking for a Xmas gift so she's hopefully found what she was looking for by now. :-)

              your're right, didnt looked at the date lol

          2. They seem to be popular at restaurants, maybe some of the resto supply stores on Parc? I haven't been so I can't say for sure that they stock them, but it might be worth a phone call.
