One half of a two part wooden butter mould which would turn out a three dimensional wheatsheaf. This is carved in sycamore. It is English and it dates from c.1830. It is very well carved with excellent detail to the wheatsheaf.
There are a number of woodworm holes and there is also a very slight split in the wood, where one of the pegs is missing. Although it is no longer usable, as it has lost its’ better half, it still makes a good display piece.
Dimensions: Height 9cm. Width 7.7cm Depth 2.2cm.
