Bullet Mold

American or English, Mid-18th c.

Bronze. A mold for casting musket balls -- eight small, three larger and one intermediate. Great old finish, well patinated with many signs of use. Heavy bronze. The handles appear to have been cast with different lengths. (NB: It's a bullet mold, not a praying mantis.) Good original condition, no restoration.

8" long (closed), 15" (open); 1-3/8" w.
