This 19th century carved, hand-held Butter Mold/Press was found in Virginia but I believe it to be Pennsylvania made. I believe the wood is maple and is comprised of three pieces; the mold, the press stamp, and the handle which is screwed into the stamp. The Press has a very clean acorn and leaf motif surrounded by a saw tooth border carved on the bottom. The mold is 4-1/2 inches in diameter by 4 inches high and the press diameter is 3-3/4 inches. Overall height to the top of press handle is 5-1/2 inches. It has fine patina and is a wonderful example of woodenware used in the 19th century. The press has a chip on the outside edge but is in otherwise excellent condition. The mold has cracks on both sides and the handle wooden screw end has some thread damage but it still works. Sales tax must be collected for buyers living in or picking up in New York State. Local tax rate applies.
