Offered here is a c.1800s Tin Mold with Corn bottom design. Mold is in good age related condition. The fun part about collecting these primitives is that there are many more uses for them today. I've seen decorative cord or ribbon attached and then hung on Christmas trees or spray painted branches. They make very pretty sounding wind chimes too. They are great for craft projects. Would I use them for baking? I would if they were scrubbed clean and the actual inside shape was not too overly rusty. As for rust, I'm sure back in the 1800s they dealt with the rust issue also. This tin mold is actually in pretty good condition with much of the silver color still visible. It measures 3 5/8 inches long by 2 1/2 inches wide by 2 inches high. The bowl part slightly dips into holder below and measures 1 ¼ inches deep. Mold and holder are one piece. Sales tax must be collected for buyers living in or picking up in New York State. Local tax rate applies.
