Seller: minaret7 (264) 100%, Location: Austin, Texas, Ships to: US, Item: 262640462313 Up for sale is an antique plaster mold. Used for casting decorative plaster elements in the 1800's, it could be used to reproduce the pattern in plaster and/or clay, or as a home decoration. These are pretty amazing tools, works of art in their own right, and were made by carving a pattern in wood, capturing its relief in hard black wax, then setting the mold in a block of wood. The hand painted numbers and graphite layout marks add to the layers of history ensconced in this excellent example of an architectural plaster casting mold.
