Who knows what this is? Clue–it’s not a miniature bathtub for a dollhouse. I know, because when 52 gave this to me and made me guess, I was wrong.

I’ll be experimenting with its proper use today. I’ll report back!

*I put an egg next to it as a size reference. The egg is not related to its use.

    Butter mold?

  2. Linda T. says:

    Butter mold was my guess too…..

  3. Neena says:

    Looks like a mini loaf pan to me.

  4. stacy says:

    Looks like a butter dish

  5. KentuckyFarmGirl says:

    My granny had a butter mold like this. I don’t know if that the official use for it but that’s what she always used it for.

  6. Heidi says:

    butter puns incoming…

  7. monica says:

    Well I gotta be different. . .how about a cream cheese mold??? :clover: It looks old though.

  8. Nancy says:

    I go with butter mold too…

  9. Mama Pea says:

    A cracker dish.

  10. Jyl says:

    I say a butter mold as well.

  11. Connie says:

    My guess is butter dish as well.

  12. Ken Mueller says:

    A device for defrosting your icebox? Wait, I guess they don’t do that anymore. It might be what I use to hold the contents of my pockets each night. Lame. A butter dish needs a top. Hmm, OK, I give up.

  13. Michelle says:

    I, too, was going to guess that it was a butter mold. Does 52 have some beef with your butter’s free-form style? 😉

  14. laney says:

    I am leaning towards butter mold too…

  15. Michelle says:

    P.S. – I gave you a little shout-out over on my wee little blog, cuz you rock and stuff. :shimmy:

  16. SkippyMom says:

    Definitely looks like a butter mold.

  17. Susan at Charm of the Carolines says:

    Well, since butter mold is clearly already spoken for, I’ll guess vintage asparagus or corn on the cob plate?


  18. Julie says:

    I was thinking butter or cream cheese mold too.

  19. Stephanie D says:

    Butter dish. Or a MINI-loaf pan.

  20. Emilie says:

    I tam thinking a butter mold

  21. Trina says:

    I thought butte :snuggle: r mold too

  22. Jessica says:

    is it for cream cheese or some other kind of shaped cheese?

  23. Action Squirrel says:

    My eye is broken so I can’t tell how long it is. If it’s long, then I guess asparagus baker. If it’s short, I vote ice brick maker for igloos.

  24. Joy says:

    Looks like a butter dish to me.

  25. Glenie says:

    Without reading any comments I say its a cracker caddie?

  26. Mia says:

    mini loaf pan or relish/pickle dish is my guess. I’d say butter mold too, but looks pretty plain for that??

  27. Charlotte says:

    Banana split dish? Cookie holder for Clover? My sewing scissors would fit perfectly in there.

  28. Rainey says:

    I would say butter dish or a crock dish for cooking pot pie kind of things. :chicken:

  29. LK says:

    After reading all of the guesses and considering all of them, I would suggest a pickle or cracker dish, but I truly believe that it is a “whatever your mind wants it to be” dish! I KNOW that I am right on that guess! :yes: I am sure that my kids would think of some ingenious use for it…if it isn’t a dollhouse bathtub, how about a toy horse or cattle trough? :moo:

    One guess from the oldest one is a mini loaf pan…not as ingenious as I had thought.

  30. Amy says:

    I say mini loaf pan. I used to have some like this!

  31. Alane says:

    : :cowsleep: I think butter dish

  32. random wanderer says:

    pretty sure it’s a butter dish.

  33. beverly says:

    a butter dish, an olive dish, a hamster’s watering trough, a jello mold? :snoopy:
