A late 19th century helmeted butter mold in an unusual 2 pound size (most that you find are either ½ pound or 1 pound). The plunger on this mold is decorated with a carved strawberry and 2 leaves. The helmet w/ plunger down is about 6 ½" tall and 3 ½" in diameter; the decorated pusher/plunger is slightly less. Wonderful mellow patina with no chips, cracks or breaks in the helmet; the plunger has some staining and a small edge chip that is worn smooth with age and use. Very hard wood, probably maple.
