Antique English creamware aspic jelly mold, c.1800. The mold takes the form of a roosting bird probably a duck with its beak tucked into its back and its tail ruffed. Fine-bodied mold in very good antique condition with rubbed glaze around the tail, head, and rim. Faint, general discoloration. Visible ridge line along the exterior front of the mold looks like a seam. It has what appears to be a shallow hairline forming in the glaze OR it is a manufacturing flaw. In either case, it is superficial. No restoration.
Size: 8 ¾” x 6”. Maximum height is 5 ½”.
