This is a listing for a small and rare antique carved butter stamp featuring a bird.

Dating from the very early 20th Century, this butter mould is in excellent condition, with a nicely carved pattern and nice honey coloured patina to the wood. This is a very small example (one of the smallest I have seen), although this makes the detail of the carving stand out.

This stamp is in good overall condition. The carving itself is still very clear. There are some minor age marks to the outer casing, which have occurred through age, but these add to the patination of the wood. There is a small hole in the middle of the carving, which is where the wood would have been turned originally.

Butter stamps like these make excellent decorative pieces of kitchenalia, and are also good to use either for decorating small butter pats or as use as biscuit stamps (they work particularly well on shortbread). It's particularly rare to see them with decorations like birds.

Dimensions:
Width, 3.5cm (at widest point; 2.5cm across stamp face)
