Why take the time to decorate your butter? Well, why not? Decorated butter looks better on the tables. Also, butter decorated and pre-measured by 1 lb or 1/2 lb was easier to sell. Back in the day you can could get a butter mold for a couple of dimes. Today ebay has them from $30.00- $500.00.
|Growing up I played with antique butter molds. Strange?
I don’t think so. I have them on my dining room table. Anyone who comes over
can’t resist playing with them at any age.
|It’s always fun to turn a mold over and see what’s hiding underneath. I can’t pass up the star motif’s.|
|And just a note…. They didn’t have “I can’t believe it’s not better” back then. My butter is way too soft:)|
