An interesting, 19th century copper mould. This has a band of overlapping squares to the top, forming the tops to the angular columns, and these are around a central pipe. It has a wide base which is beautifully engraved with the emblem of the Prince of Wales to the side of the initials “D*K”. It is likely that the mould was originally made for the kitchens of Edward the 7th when he was Prince of Wales but it was then passed to the kitchens of one of the Dukes of Kent as this has been a titled used by royalty over the centuries. It is possible that it was passed to the household of Prince George, the fourth son of George the 5th, who was created Duke of Kent in 1934.
The mould is made from a heavy gauge of copper and dates from c.1870. There is slight denting to the corners of some of the tops but other than that it is in good condition. The tinning, to the interior, is worn.
Dimensions: Diameter 16cm. Height 10.8cm.
