Old Pewter Ice Cream Mold Floral & Foliate Design Marked S & Co Number 457
Description: A very nice rectangular pewter ice cream mold with a design of flower bouquet, which we believe maybe daisies or asters. The flowers are arranged standing up with leaves surrounding them and on the bottom. The other half of the mold is plain with straight edges. The design shows great details and looks rather busy. The piece has two small thumb pieces at the edge of one on each half to allow you to open it easily. It is marked S & Co in raised lettering on the front of the exterior and has the number 457 also on the front. These are rather hidden within the design and are difficult to picture but are there. Please carefully review photos as they are part and parcel of our description.
