A wonderful and rarely seen example of an antique Victorian carved butter stamp.

A medium-sized example, this butter stamp features intricate detailed carving of the national emblems of the UK nations at that time - a rose for England, thistle for Scotland and three-leafed clover for Ireland. This is very rare and shows that the stamp was created as a symbol of union, and would typically have been produced as a wedding gift, to represent the union of a couple.

In excellent condition, the carving on this example is exceptional and is packed with detail. The crispness and detail of the pattern is particularly noteworthy, with lots of details.

The handle has a minor amount of damage, with a small crack at the base, but otherwise this is in fantastic condition and is a lovely deep colour.

Height - 8.5cm; Width - 7.3cm
