Interesting hand carved mold which may have been for butter or springerle press cookies. There are two traditional designs; a bird and a cherry and two unusual ones; a smiling snake and a strange design which may be a plant or an insect.

While molds of this type are generally identified as springerle molds, there is a butter press device, patented in 1903, which used a mold like this as an insert. A clever housewife of the past may have used it for both.

Found in rural Pennsylvania farmhouse, near Valley Forge, this piece most likely dates from the late 1800's to early 1900's. It measures 3 7/8" x 3 1/4" and 1/2" thick. Condition is very good.
