A nineteenth century, butter print carved with a flower. This is carved from sycamore and it dates from c.1840. The carving of the flower is extremely well detailed. Originally this had a hole running through the centre of the print and down the length of the handle. This type of print was known as an Oxford print and the hole allowed you to blow down the centre of the handle to release the butter more easily. The hole has been filled, on the face, probably by someone who didn’t realise the significance of it. There are a couple of short cracks to the rim and there are also a few wood worm holes but this has all been treated.
Dimensions: Diameter 9.2cm. Length of print and handle 6.5cm.
Price includes postage within the U.K. Shipping to the U.S.A. add £20. Most of Western Europe add £10.

Period:

We started in the antique business in 1983.  At first we were were regulars on the fair circuit  and for over 20 years we have had various outlets on the Portobello Road. We now trade from Atlam at 111 Portobello Road. The shop is open Monday to Friday 10am till 4pm and Saturday 7am till 5pm.

During that 35 years our business has evolved considerably as tastes and styles change. We started out dealing in kitchenalia and early English pottery but now our stock is quite different. Being keen cooks we still love kitchenalia, but much of our stock can still be used.  One of our major lines is Antique copper kitchenware which we re-tin and turn out ready for use. Not all antique copper is good enough to make usable again so we travel thousands of miles to source copper that is both good quality and in good enough condition to re-instate to its’ former glory. Our clientele includes professional chefs, keen amateur cooks, food historians, stately homes and the entertainment industry.

We have always specialised in antique moulds, ceramic, pewter and copper, and love the history of moulded food.

If you are looking for copper purely for decorative purposes we also supply this and you don’t need to pay the premium for the usable pieces.

We have always worked with the customers on our extensive database. If there is something within our field that you are looking for, just email us and we will contact you, and try to work with you as well. An enquiry does not put you under any obligation.

We also carry a range of quality, 19th century, French crystal glass, again more for use than for collectors.

We have a passion for antiques that have lived and can live again.
