Fall Hutch with Vintage Ironstone and Wooden Butter Molds


Confession time...I've started another vintage collection. This time it's wooden butter molds. I really didn't mean to start another collection 😂, but I saw these at an auction and loved the intricate designs and patina on them. I just couldn't resist! Have you ever seen one?

I can just imagine the proud moment when the hostess (or host) revealed her butter that had been shaped with one of these beauties. These days we're so used to plain blocks of butter we wouldn't know what to do if we saw it molded into something this pretty.

I also thought these might be used to create some interesting pottery pieces. My Friday afternoon pottery class has been on hiatus since March, but when we eventually start meeting again I'll definitely be using these pretty butter molds with clay somehow.

The little "U" is probably an individual butter mold, which would likely have been set at each place setting. How fancy!

The character and patina of these molds, which are probably all hand-carved, drew me in as soon as I saw them.

There are various sizes in the collection, and a couple of them have had the handles broken off. But that's okay with me. I mainly just want to look at them and doubt I'll be making butter any time soon.

They look just right in our antique oak hutch with some of my other collections...vintage white ironstone pitchers and platters. I tucked some pears and dried hydrangeas in here for a bit more texture. Decorating with wood and whites is so easy.

I also got a few vintage bottles from the auction to add to my collection of those. I think I'm going to have to start selling off parts of my collections soon because they're getting a bit out of hand. I'll be sure to announce it here if that happens!
