This is a spectacular walnut chip-carved pineapple butter print of Pennsylvania origin from the 19th century. Of very uncommon form, this is especially nicely executed, with deep cross hatchings and flamboyant leaves. A great example of utilitarian folk art.

Also unusual is the large size, with a 4 5/8" diameter and 3" height. The print is in excellent condition with a deep patina.
