You are buying an Original Pennsylvania Dutch Vintage SHEAF OF WHEAT Wooden Butter Mold hand carved in the early 19th century. The butter mold is approx. 4 3/8" " in diameter and and 2 3/4" high at the top of the handle. This mold was one of a group of 4 early 19th century carved butter molds purchased at an onsite farm auction in Mastersonville, (Lancaster County), PA. in 1975. I mold has deeply incised carvings which exhibit moderate wear. There are no cracks or splits to the wooden mold which I grade as in Very Fine condition, however Grading is very subjective and I recommend you examine the photos carefully. I guarantee this Vintage PA Dutch carved wooden butter mold to be an original early 1800's manufacture and not a reproduction or reissue.
