ANTIQUE FOLK ART Bird Hand Carved Butter Stamp. Fine Early American Hand Carved Folk Art Butter Stamp AAFA.
Beautiful Carved Bird, Flowers, Unusual Shape with Serrated Edge. All original Early American butter stamp made of beautiful old growth American hardwood. Gorgeous old, as found, untouched patina! Nice solid deep carving, in two different woods. The handle appears to be made of walnut, the stamp perhaps in maple.Beautiful form, beautiful articulate lines! Most stamps are circles or rectangles, ever see one in this outline shape? As my collection grew I only sought the unusual ones. This one came from an estate of a very old collection in Oneonta, NY.
It was a local piece as was documented. It was a good way to find great items of history around this big beautiful country. Check back for future items.
