This is a quality piece of antique treen kitchenalia dating from the nineteenth Century.

Butter rollers would have been used to decorate hand made butter, sometimes denoting the area where the butter was produced. This example is filled with a deep decorative pattern featuring a thistle and foliage. The presence of the thistle means it is likely this originated in Scotland. 

Antique butter stamps like this look lovely displayed as part of a kitchenalia collection. They are also excellent used in the modern kitchen as biscuit stamps. They work particularly well on shortbread. 

The butter print is in excellent overall condition, with a nice honey colour to the wood. Complete with its original wooden fittings, the roller moves well still. There are some minor stains and wear to the handle, but otherwise this piece is in excellent order.  

Length, 15.5cm; Width (across edge of roller), 5.5cm (roller is 2.5cm wide); Height (across diameter of roller), 5cm
