Copper Mould with Rope Twist Top

Copper Mould with Rope Twist Top

Code: H21060


A 19th century, French copper, fancy border mould. This type of mould was used for forming a ring, either sweet or savoury, and the centres could then be filled. This could be a ring of mashed potato with devilled kidneys in the centre or a ring of cake filled with fruits. Due to the shallow nature of this type of mould they work  very well in a hanging display. This example is made from a heavy gauge of copper and it dates from c.1870. There are two sets of initials engraved on the side of the mould, “L.P.G” and "C.V.R”. These would both be initials of previous owners. The design has a rope twist effect to the top, above fluted sides. It is in excellent condition but the tinning, to the interior, is worn. There is a hole in the rim, probably from where a hanging loop has been removed. 

Dimensions: Diameter 17.5cm. Height 6.5cm.
