I’m sure this made the table pop when it was done with beautiful fruit and gelatin or savory jelly. This mold has a Maltese cross design on each raised pillar. The patina is nice and the item still has a nice shine. Signs of age and use, areas of green verdigris, slightly misshaped very good overall.
No large 18th or 19th century house would be without a selection of molds for shaping various desserts and savory dishes for presentation at table, and these make a decorative and very useful addition to a modern kitchen. In the 1830s, copper jelly molds became popular. Hammered or die-stamped into shape and lined with tin to prevent verdigris poisoning, copper molds were more likely to have abstract shapes than representational ones. When polished, they looked very well in a kitchen, and often doubled as cake molds.
