Vintage 1800s German Miniature Handcarved Butter Mold

ANTIQUE 1800S GERMAN CHILD'S BUTTER MOLD

Handcarved, Beautiful, & Very Unusual

We have not seen another miniature mold such as this one: an array of handcarved decorative wooden, hinged panels connected like flower petals to a center panel. Each panel is carved with a different scene.....floral, log cabin, and deer with antlers. The peripheral panels fold up around the central panel, and are then bound by a wooden loop that easily slips on and off the folded mold.

This piece is miniature, but actually works perfectly. The resulting cube of butter is decorated on each side and the top, with unique woodland scenes. Delightful! When bound by the loop, the mold measures 2 inches in height and 6 inches in circumference at the widest point. Each panel measures 1 inch by 1 5/8 inches.

This sweet butter mold is in superb condition. Please check our site in the upcoming days for additional miniature European kitchen collectibles.
