Wonderful mold in very good condition. This is a hinged pewter ice cream mold. The shape/pattern is of our first president, George Washington. Ice cream molds were created in France for individual desserts in the early 1800's. Schall & Co. began making them in New York City in 1854. The mold number is 460 and visible on his front. This is the S&Co pattern number for George. Not sure why the S&Co isn't on this one. The pattern is very detailed on both sides. Just look at the detail in his coat and hair. This mold measures about 5 3/4" tall.
