Antique Pewter Ice Cream Mold, Football Player
A rare 2 piece pewter ice cream mold in the figure of an early football player. The mold was made ca 1920s, shortly after football was created. It's numbered 491. As is normal for a mold, the exterior is plain and without features. But open it up and you'll see the figure is finely detailed with facial features (looking determined), hair at the back of his head going over to the front, quilting to his padding and even the ties on his jersey center front and also on his pants center front. The football is cradled in his hands and you can see the lacing on that. 5 1/2" tall. Wouldn't your football hero be thrilled to get his or her ice cream that way?
