A large and most unusual hinged butter mold with a flower carved interior. The mold creates an oval or football-shaped lump of butter that is 6 ¾” x 3 ½” and is 1 ¾” thick. There are iron hinges on the exterior and the mold is held together with an iron hook at one end. Fascinating construction that I have never seen with a butter mold before. Overall size is 10” x 5” x 2 ½”, and it is in very fine condition: deep, rich natural color with only some minor rubbing on the top inside edge. Hinges function properly and the hook does hold the mold closed.
