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.


Similar examples are illustrated in Pinto.

It measures 20cm l x 10.5cm w x 2cm d.
