1920's wooden pie mould
A large, wooden pie mould. This type of mould was used for making hand raised pork pies. The mould was placed in the centre of a circle of pastry and the pastry was then raised up around the sides. The mould was then pulled out and the centre would be filled with the meat mixture. A pastry cover was then put over the top and the top and sides were crimped together. Hand made pies are still made in the same way today.
This example is turned from beechwood and it dates from c.1920. It is in excellent condition and the wood has a good patina. It could still be used.
