Italian butter stamps with an ovoid shape can generally be traced to the Piedmont region with the epicenter of production in the Valli di Lanzo. Their dimensions vary widely as do their “grips”. Most present wooden shafts or handles, though some, like this one, are fitted with an iron loop.
The sculpted portion of the tool shows an asymmetric heart and a leaf, both surrounded by a cord-like motif. The border presents a series of regular channels.
Early 1900s.

Length 10 cm, width 5 cm

BIBLIOTHECA CULINARIA

By Appointment
Lodi

WWW.BIBLIOTHECACULINARIA.IT

Bibliotheca Culinaria began as a specialized publisher providing books to Italy's professional chefs. Our curiosity regarding culinary history led to an interest in material culture and the many tools and objects that relate to agriculture, cooking, and dining.

We've assisted restaurants, pastry shops, and hotels in locating unusual items for their decor and are always delighted to add to a collection of kitchenalia. We welcome the challenge of assembling groups of objects for maximum visual impact. Our stock, largely Italian and French in origin, encompasses a range of materials and eras from Alpine treen to French majolica, from copper pots to Murano glass.

We find objects that display signs of use to be particularly eloquent. Handling them, we are reminded of the lasting impact of simple quotidian gestures and they return us to the particular convivial atmosphere of past times.
