What a fun piece! This butter mold is unique, since it was made from extra wood pieces that were lying around – someone had need of a mold and they just made one! I’ve never seen a butter mold that wasn’t solid; this one has about an inch gap at the top, so the butter had to be very congealed so that it didn’t ooze out of the top. However, with the gap in the top, the butter press can rest at the top of the piece – if you ever need it to. The mold itself measures 6 5/8” at its longest, 3” wide, and 4 ¼” tall (not counting the handle of the press). The press looks like it was made from a piece of bead board. Several different sizes of nails were used to make the mold, so the maker wasn’t interested in style, just in molding butter! This is a delightful primitive piece!
