The butter press was
used by the pioneers to make ornate patterns on blocks of butter.
The pioneer women would make the beautifully designed butter and sell it
to the more wealthy people for some extra money. This butter press
is still soaked with the fat from the butter! It is made out of wood
and designs are carefully carved into it. This artifact comes to us from
the Glenbow museum. It is approximately 100 years old. Wow!
