Vintage Mid Century English Treen Butter Stamp or Biscuit Press with Swan Decoration
A wonderful small, but delicately carved, vintage English wooden butter stamp, with a swimming swan.
This is a great piece of vintage kitchenalia, perfect for giving a farmhouse feel to any display and for ongoing use imprinting its simple yet charming flower pattern into a butter round or biscuits. Stamps like this are particularly effective for use on shortbread.
Carved from sycamore, this butter stamp is likely to date from the mid 20th Century. In unused condition, it’s likely this is an item which has been displayed rather than used. The detail of the carving is very good, and there is a nice border feature.
Quite small in size, this stamp is in excellent condition and appears to have had hardly any use. There are a few marks around the outside of the mould, and a few tiny specs of possibly paint of the piece. But overall this is a very sweet piece of kitchenalia, ideal both for display and use.
