Butter Mold - (Woodenware, Kitchen, Primitive, Folk Art) In the last half of the 17th Century it became fashionable to decorate butter. Molds were carved out of wood and can be either round, square or rectangular. The press part of the mold was carved in high relief so it would leave a decoration in the butter. The most valuable of these molds have either birds, animals or other intricate designs.
