This is an antique butter mold that comes apart into 6 separate pieces (four exterior and two interior – the single interior piece broke into two but still fits well in the mold).
The wood has a nice antique patina to it. The sides connect by notched joinings and hooks/tabs. It is definitely still usable as a butter mold or could be a charming display piece.
