It makes shaped butter pats - you put the butter in the bowl and then squish down so that butter comes out of the holes as solid shaped butter pats.

This is a fancy butter server. Softened butter is placed in the top of the two piece server then pushed up to make fancy butter curls. Then refrigerate to harden.

You put butter between the bottom and the top, pressed down, and curls of butter will come out of the top.

Butter Shaper. You put the butter in it and press down. It ends up looking like a flower.

It's for cut flowers with short stems.

I think this is a butter server. You fill the top with butter and then press it down over the base and the butter curls out of the top’s cut-out designs. The bottom screws off and you can fill it with ice to keep the butter cold. I have this exact item and it came from a great aunt. She told me that’s what it was used for...
