We like this butter press because of the deep floral and acorn carvings, it's less common 2 quart size and the fact it is complete with it's frame. The board measures 10 1/8" by 4 7/8" and 7/8" thick. The frame measures 11" by 5 1/4" and 3" tall.
The poplar board is divided into 8 sections, each with a deeply carved design and separated by raised divider insets. These inserts are cleverly let into a dovetailed channel to keep them in place.
The condition is good with some loss to one of the dividers and a stain in one section. The frame was originally nailed and screws were later added at each corner for additional strength.
