Pewter banquet mould

Code: F18995


H: 15cm (5.9")Di: 11.2cm (4.4")


A three part, pewter, ice cream banquet mould. This piece is marked, in the casting to the base, with the orb and cross symbol used by Benhams, a number  ’45’ and ‘1 1/2 PINT’. The number would be a pattern number and 1 1/2 PINT is the capacity of the mould. It is quite unusual to find the Benhams mark, in this form, in a pewter mould and it dates from c.1870.  The design of the mould has fluted sides with a well modelled rose to the top. It is in excellent condition. The exterior has a good, dark patina, and the interior is still in very good, bright, usable condition.
