Butter mold

Butter mold
Square, wooden butter mold. Since butter was made on the farm by the farm family and was not bought in the store, new butter did not appear in ready-made shapes. Freshly churned butter could be placed into a wooden mold and shaped to look tidier. The video includes a demonstration of the mold being used. Date approximated.
