Description:

Ten Tin Jelly or Sugar Molds, America, late 19th century, possibly made and certainly used by the Shakers, the scalloped forms with flat bottoms, (some rust and accumulated grit), ht. 1 in.

Note: Similar molds are shown on p. 341 in Gather Up the Fragments, with a caption explaining that the Shaker tin-making enterprises and the worldly ones made very similar products, and thus tinware is often difficult to attribute to the Shakers.
Estimate $20-30
