Rare Yellow Ware Elephant Pudding Mold
This 19th century yellow ware pudding mold features the amazing impression of an elephant, a pattern we've never found before. The outside of the mold has a wonderful brown Rockingham glaze; taken together, they make this c. 1840 mold a rarity.
This mold measures 7 1/2 inches long, 6 inches from front to back at the rim and 3 inches tall. It weighs about 2 pounds. It's in very good shape, with one old chip on each side of the upper rim and a crazed interior but no cracks or hairlines. As you can see in our photos, this antique kitchen mold sits nicely on its side, the better to show off that elephant.
