Antique Early 20th Century White Ironstone Jelly or Mousse Mould in the Shape of a Fish by Dutch Societe Ceramique of Maastricht
This is a nice example of an early 20th Century antique white ironstone mould in the shape of a fish, made by Societe Ceramique of Maastricht.
Dating from the early 1900s, this ironstone mould was most likely intended for use moulding fish mousses. But given its large size, it could also have been used as a jelly mould.
In nice aged condition, this is a good piece of kitchenalia which displays really well. It has nice detail of the eye, gills and fin, plus a tea stained colouring and crazing from where the mould has been used over the years.
There are are few firing faults and age spots, most notable on the side where there is a streak of clay, and also a small dent in the base rim.
