Hand Made Butter Stamps

Both of these stamps are hand carved. Both of them have damage... The Eagle, is not missing a piece, it had a crack, and over the years has separated... This one and the Strawberry, are my personal favorites...{ well, the one with the Heart, and hand dovetailed box, has to be in, with this group...} The other, that is shown here, is also, in my opinion, wonderful... It has been repaired, and it must have meant a great deal, to someone... If the Eagle was perfect, it would command the most, out of all of them... Probably, in this area, around the 200.00 mark. I would guess these date from the mid 1800's, and I love them all!
