This lovely Antique Wooden Butter Stamp features a beautiful Swan, and the carver has really captured the regal elegance that Swans always have. The details of her feathers, the rippling water beneath her, and the rushes in front of her are outstanding, and it has a well carved piecrust border. The patina is beautiful after so many years of being used, and the carving is deep and well defined. These were used to identify which farm or dairy, made the butter and are a great addition to any collection of dairy items, or treenware. It stands 3 3/4" high and 4 1/2" wide, and the condition is excellent considering that it is over 100 years old, it does have an old split in the handle, but this is quite acceptable in a stamp this old. The stamp itself is perfect. This was part of my own collection which I will be listing as soon as I can. Please be sure to click on photo for enlargement and more pictures so that you can really enjoy this lovely piece and please take a minute or two to check out some of our other treasures.
