Antique English Copper Mould, Mold

This is a large fine heavy antique English copper mould engraved with the #332 on the side. Copper moulds became popular from the 1830s due to the developments in close-plating and tinning, which safeguarded against verdigris poisoning. These moulds were used for jellies that were made from gelatine producing parts of animals - sheep's heads, the feet of hogs, cows and calves and shavings of antlers for hartshorn jelly. They were boiled for long hours, clarified with egg white and strained repeatedly through a sieve or jelly bags made of swan skin. The jelly was then highly flavored with spices, wine, sugar, and lemon and poured into a mould. This mould is in excellent condition.
