Dimensions:W: 13cm (5.1")H: 13cm (5.1")D: 14.3cm (5.6")
An early 19th century beechwood butter ejector print dating from c.1830. This type of cup, or ejector, print was filled with butter and then the butter was pushed out leaving a circular block of butter with a design on the top. This print is carved with a heart design surrounded by various borders. The design is slightly primitive in style but very attractive. There is a small split to one side of the cup which has not opened out. Other than this the piece is in very good condition and the wood has a lovely, pale patina.
