This is old, 1890’s. My husband is an antique bottle digger and found it on a dig. This is the third one he has found. I have seen it on WorthPoint as a Maple Sugar Mold and on Pinterest as a Butter Mold. The center animal would create a depression so is it a mold? What is this darling little animal block? It’s ceramic, about 2″. Would love to know! Thank you.
