The object of De Carly's invention "is to provide a simple and efficacious butter-mold." De Carly notes that "by the use of this machine the butter can be molded and clothed at one operation. The butter being firmly pressed with the cloth, it is not so liable to change its shape if the roll softens, and in addition to this no handling is required by the hands while being rolled." (Patent Number 256,467)
