An interesting wooden gesso mould carved with a single acanthus leaf. This piece is carved in a fruitwood, possibly cherry, and it dates from c.1820. Originally it would have been used for moulding gesso but similar moulds were also used for sugar moulding and they can be used for either. This one is well carved and the design is very deep. It is in excellent condition.
