Offering a charming set of antique paper mache molds. These are solid wood. The largest one is a rooster, then the medium one is a hen and the smallest one is a chick.

They're large and make a fantastic display. Handcarved. Once the carving was completed a coating of wax would be applied so that the thin layer of paper mache could 'release' from the carving easier when dried.

A knife was used to cut down each side, through the paper mache thus pulling the paper mache off the wood in two halves. The halves would then be seamed back together with paper mache and ultimately painted.

The largest one, a Rooster, measures approximately: 14 inches long x 6 1/4 inches wide x 10 1/2 inches tall.

The medium one, a Hen, measures approximately: 10 1/4 inches long x 5 1/2 inches wide x 7 1/4 inches high.

The small one, a Chick, measures approximatley: 7 1/4 inches long x 4 1/2 inches wide x 5 1/4 inches high.

Each one is in strong structural condition. Being that these were used for making paper mache pieces, there are strong groove lines cut along the top of each one, from end to end. This is how the paper mache was removed once it was dry.

The wood has nicks, dents and other signs of being used in manufacture. Overall has a wonderful rich patina and displays beautifully.

Set of VERY hard to find molds. These are hard to find by themselves, much less in a full family set.

Guaranteed antique and authentic. Satisfaction guaranteed.
