Long, long ago making jelly molds was an art form and only for the wealthy. There was no powdered gelatin available and it took two or three days to extract gelatin from calves’ feet. You also needed sugar which was very expensive until the 19th century. And the process to make a mold required access to ice, which was a luxury. During the Victorian era, glass molds with varius designs were not only used to create a lovely jelly (think of todays Jello) mold for guests to enjoy but were often displayed in a dining room cupboard for all to admire when not in use.
This lovely thick clear glass jelly mold (also used as a mold for thick pudding) from England, circa 1940s, has a "bubble" design with vertical ribbed sides. In excellent vintage condition with no chips or cracks. Add to your glass mold collection or start one with this lovely English mold!
