A fabulous quality, 18th century, double sided, boxwood sugar mould. This is beautifully carved with a series of small designs which would have been used for producing elaborate decorations for cakes. It is marked with the name of the carver but this is now quite worn and illegible. It is English and dates from c.1780. The wood has a lovely, honey coloured patina and the mould is in very good condition. There are just a few, fine shrinkage cracks in the wood which you would expect from a piece of this period.
Dimensions: Length 20cm. Width 13.6cm. Depth 2.7cm.
