Butter print carved with a swan

Code: G20236


A  wooden butter print carved with a swan. This is very finely carved, with excellent detail to the design. It is difficult to identify the wood as a dark wax has been used on it and that makes it difficult to see the grain properly. There are a couple of woodworm holes to the reverse of the mould but they have been treated and the worm is no longer active. Other than this it is in excellent condition. 

English. Date c.1860

Dimensions: Diameter of print 9.9cm. Overall length of print and handle 10cm.
