Back when four of my family were in the Navy, I bought this vintage pewter ice cream battleship mold from another dealer at an antiques' show in which I participated. She told me it was a replica of the battleship, "Maine". I bought the mold only for display, and didn't know much about them then. I don't know much more than I did then, but I am not so sure it is the "Maine". The approximately 6-1/2" long x 2-1/4" high x 1-1/2" wide(at widest part) mold is marked "612" on one side, and still is fun to display, showing the outside closed, or the more detailed ship inside as it opens. The turn of the century battleship is a bit misshapen and gaps slightly when it is closed, but a nice display piece nonetheless. Perfect for those, like us, who love and support the US Navy! Thank you for visiting.
