White Wednesday - Victorian Jelly Moulds

Occasionally, when I am at boot fairs, I come across these fascinating Victorian jelly moulds. I love all the wonderful patterns, all so very different, some geometric, some floral. It makes collecting them such fun. Usually they are different shades of white, every now and then I find a brown one. Some are in great condition, others have little chips from being used many times, and some have intricate crazing. But all are beautiful to me.

Here is a selection of mostly white Victorian jelly moulds from my collection -


I am linking this post to the wonderful Faded Charm blog and the 100th White Wednesday post over there. What an achievement!
