18th Century Butter "Church" Box Carved with Unique Patterned Imprints, 1788

About

18th century Swedish butter "Church" Box carved with multiple unique patterned imprints, initial and dated: AGS / Anno 1788; fully disassemble like a puzzle As a rule, the carving used on the small household containers was the large-patterned, deeply cut carving of the late Middle Ages. Used on the underside of butter box lids, a pattern imprints the butter, a fancy touch for a company table. All of the most attractive containers were brought out when there were guests in the house. Footed cheese and lefse stands, large wooden troughs or bowls with flat horizontal hands for soup and meat, carved ladles and spoons and fine candlesticks, bedecked the table.
