This is a very unusual sycamore butter stamp and slapper in the shape of a lollipop.

The circular top is really well carved with a central heart.

The reverse is plain and would have been used as a butter slapper.

There is some references to these lollipop butter stamps originating from Yorkshire and being used for butter and biscuits making for funerals.
