About L. Tremain

The L. Tremain Company, founded in 1996, is a privately held, family run business based in Los Angeles, CA. The company’s main focus is to provide unique and time-honored kitchen tools, gourmet housewares and decorative tabletop lines to consumers worldwide.

The very first product line launched by the company was based on a centuries old French butter storage device. The company has taken the traditional French concept, increased its effectiveness and beauty, to create an innovative butter storage unit specifically for the American palate—the Original Butter Bell® Crock. Since its inception in 1996, the Butter Bell® crock has become the most recognized brand of butter crocks in the US and Canada.

The Original Butter Bell® Crock is a modern version of the authentic French "beurrier".

L. Tremain has recreated and improved this natural method of preserving the creamy texture and delicate flavor that makes butter the most desirable and most-used spread in the world. 

Made from high quality, durable New Bone China, the Butter Bell crock safely keeps butter at room temperature—on the counter or tabletop—without spoilage, refrigeration or odors.
