This is a great example of a large, two part mold, in the form of a fish, carved in pine. Each mold half measures 16 3/4" long by 4" tall and 1 1/4" thick. The old makes a fish that is 11" long, 3 1/4" tall and 1 1/2" thick.
The deep carving is particularly well done considering the softness of the material. The condition is good. The mold retains its original unfinished surface and original orienting pins. This mold was part of the estate of Jane Murphy, a well known Ohio antiques dealer.
