Antique Pewter G. W. Hatchet number 243 George Washington Ice Cream Mold, two-part hinged metal, figural hatchet head. I believe that this George Washington hatchet pewter ice cream mold commemorates the historical or legendary chopping down of the cherry tree by a young George Washington. This vintage ice cream mould is a fun kitchen collectible.

I do not see any manufacturer’s name or initials on this interesting old ice cream mold, except for the # 243. In my research, this number 243 G.W. hatchet mold was attributed by some people to the American manufacturer, Krauss and Company, but I cannot verify this? It is my guess that this mold was made in the early 1900’s?

Ice cream molds were made of pewter and used in Victorian times to keep the ice cream frozen longer, and yet allowed for the ice cream to be removed more easily from the mold. This interesting old ice cream mold was made to hold enough ice cream for one person.

This double-sided hatchet pewter ice cream mold measures about 3 ½” wide when closed, and is about 3 ¼” tall when closed. The heavy pewter mold measures about 6 1/2” wide when opened up flat on the table.

The ice cream mold is in excellent vintage used condition. There is some age darkening in the metal that did not wash off with gentle cleaning. There are minor very small rust spots at the top and bottom of the hinge pin, and a tiny bit of rust color showing on the hinge mechanism (see photos). There are minor scratches and pits in the metal here and there, which you would expect in an antique mold that was lovingly used over the years. The hinge mechanism works fine.

Note: These antique pewter molds contain unsafe levels of lead, and should never be used for food. They make wonderful kitchen display items.

Please check my VintageMoonbeams store for another unusual antique pewter ice cream mold that I am offering separately.
