Copper ice cream 'bombe' mould

Copper ice cream 'bombe' mould

Code: G20153


A nineteenth century, copper, ice cream bombe mould and cover. This is unmarked but it is English and it dates from c.1880. The mould was lined with ice cream and then filled with a fruit or chocolate sauce. This was then topped with ice cream and the whole was frozen. When turned out, and cut into, the sauce poured out, thus creating an explosion, hence the term ‘bombe’ mould. The detachable, brass foot allows air into the mould which aids the removal of the ice cream. 

There are a couple of very small marks to the copper and there is slight wear to the tinning but it is still in good enough condition for it to be used.

Dimensions: Diameter 12.4cm. Height 14.2cm.
