Early Victorian antique ironstone lioness jelly mould - Wedgwood

Early Victorian antique ironstone lioness jelly mould - Wedgwood

A very rare antique white ironstone 'big cat' jelly mould. Produced by Wedgwood early to mid 19thC with a pronounced foot, fluted edges and a relief motif inside of a recumbent lioness. The outside edge bears an impressed mark for Wedgwood with the pattern number 466, which predates the the date coding used by Wedgwood from 1860.


Condition: This antique jelly mould displays well but has a large chip missing on the foot. There are also 2 very minor hairlines inside the mould, one on the hind leg and one on the front leg of the feline. Further signs of wear, staining and age are present, but these only add to the character of this rarely offered mould. 


Approximate dimensions:

15.4cm x 11.2cm

8.1cm tall
