Vintage Wooden Casting Moulds

A collection of hand carved wooden 'Casting Moulds’. The moulds where originally used to make a resin based product. The wooden carvings where first wrapped in papier mache, once dry the papier mache was cut in half, (hence the visible cut marks). The two halves where put back together as a whole paper figure. The figure were either covered in resin or painted. 

The factory produced these figures between 1890's and 1950's.
