A fine hardwood chip carved butter print in the form of a stylized flower and leaves. Possibly it's a heart or a turnip :). Whatever it is, it is unusual for this form, is charmingly done, and of Pennsylvania origin from the 19th century.

The piece is 2 5/8" in diameter, 2" in height, has a nice old patina, and except for a shrinkage crack in the side of the handle, is in excellent condition.
