What Is It? July 2014

We had several correct answers to our July’s What Is It. Congratulations to Jean Roller, Boulder, Colorado; Ronald Moreschini, D.D.S., Pueblo, Colorado; Patty Echelmeyer, Wheat Ridge, Colorado; Sharon Filzen of Monument, Colorado and Jerome McLaren of Conifer, Colorado. You have all won a year’s subscription to the Mountain States Collector. The object pictured above is a wonderful old butter mold. Handmade animal butter prints, this one measuring 3 1/2 inches across, were used to stamp decorations on top of butter. Animal designs are desirable as folk carvings. Thank you, all who ventured a guess. Why not try your hand at the August What Is It? good luck!
