A 19th century wooden pie mould. This type of mould was used for making hand raised pork pies. The mould was placed in the centre of a circle of pastry and the pastry was then raised up around the sides. The mould was then pulled out and the centre would be filled with the meat mixture. A pastry cover was then put over the top and the top and sides were crimped together. Hand made pies are still made in the same way today. 
This is a lovely example with a mushroom shaped handle and turned detail to the shoulder. It is turned from beechwood and it dates from c.1880.  It is in excellent condition and the wood has a good patina. It could still be used.
