A fantastic antique large foundry sand mould. Made from cast iron and mounted on wood. The design is of a sitting lady and has a wonderful architectural quality. This mould would have been used hundreds of times to to produce the fire place backs. We believe this example dates from the later part of the 19th Century and came from a foundry for making fireplaces and architectural pieces in Hertfordshire. The fabulous timeworn patina which really adds to its charm. A wonderful salvaged item perfect to display in a garden or indoor space to add a burst of personality and character. 


This piece is extremely heavy so we will use a courier for delivery. Wear and tarnishing to the whole piece. Shows signs of wear and tear as it is old and has been used, but only adds to its character. Great decorative item which would look fantastic in any home or business interior.

Please look at photos closely as they form part of the item description.
