A rare example of an early 20th Century carved wooden flummery or butter mould.

Carved from a single piece of wood, this mould features a lovely floral decoration with a decorative border. The carving itself has a lovely rustic and naive folk art quality to it, making this a highly decorative piece. Designed for either producing bricks of butter, or for making flummery, which was a dessert popular at the time based on a combination of eggs, milk and sugar.

This mould has a lovely rich coloured patina to it. Signs of age are evident with some minor knocks to the wood and a small number of old worm holes, although these have been treated. The mould could still be used, perhaps for butter. The outer casing of the mould has a nice turned ridge making it stand out furthermore.

Diameter, 12cm; Height, 7cm
