Description: This is a curly maple wooden butter paddle with bird's head effigy hook from New England, circa 1800s for your consideration. One can just imagine the workmanship and time that the carver took to make this butter paddle from a single piece of curly maple wood. The curly maple butter paddle has a wide bowl and a long formed handle that is thick and heavy for ease of handling. There is a prominent hook handle on end of the handle for resting on a dough bowl's rim. What makes this butter paddle unique is the prominent carved hook has been shaped and carved into a bird's head effigy. This antique bird's head effigy butter paddle is so thick and heavy in weight, and one of the reasons the paddle has survived over a century of use. The grain on the wood is very detailed with wavy grain lines.

Condition Report: Excellent condition with an age appropriate patina.

Dimensions: 10 inches long including handle and 6 inches wide.

Date: 1800s
