Antique 1930s Figural Jelly Mould in the Shape of a Rabbit By Maling England
Although a little tattered and tired, this is nonetheless still a gorgeous and useful jelly mould, dating from the early 20th Century.
Made by the famous Maling factory in the 1930s, this white ironstone jelly mould has clearly seen lots of use and love over the years. But it’s still in good order and can continue to be used to make more jellies in years to come, and will also look lovely on display in the kitchen. It is rare to find plain white moulds like this by Maling.
The inside of the mould has lots of key details for the rabbit’s features to be included in any jellies. This includes its teeth, eyes, nice detail in the ears and its paws and claws.
Overall, the mould is in fair condition. It has crazed all over, some of which has lightly stained. But this gives it a lovely timeworn charm. There are also some chips to the rim. One of these, on the side of the mould, is reasonably significant and there is a tight hairline running from this which is about 2cm in length. With care, though, the mould is still usable, and it is a charming piece to have on display.
