An unusual, two part copper nougat or ice mould. This would have been used for moulding a table centrepiece, in the shape of a comport, which would have been filled with small, ice cream fruits. The ice cream fruits would have been made in small pewter moulds. We have a selection of these in the category for pewter mould on our website. This mould is made from a very heavy gauge of copper and the copper has a slightly planished finish. It dates from c.1870 and is in excellent condition, although the tinning, to the interior, is worn.
