Antique Victorian Large English Carved Treen Butter Stamp with Swan Decoration
A nice rarely seen dark wood example of a large antique Victorian English wooden butter stamp, with a swimming swan.
This butter stamp has suffered some insect and worm damage over the years, which has affected both the face of the stamp and its handle. This is therefore reflected in the price of this piece.
However, in a large size, with an integral turned handle, and lovely carved detail of a swan, this is nonetheless still a very decorative item to have in the home.
The face of the stamp has around five insect holes, and some light damage to the border. There are some scrapes to the surface of the stamp and minor age cracks, but the detail of the swan and it’s feathers is still crisp and clear.
The handle has been knocked and also has damage from insects. There is also one worm hole at the base of the handle.
Although it has suffered some damage this is still an attractive piece of antique kitchenalia, perfect for giving a farmhouse feel to any display.
