S/2764 Antique Treen Pair of Sycamore Flummery Moulds of the Georgian Period
A rare pair of sycamore flummery moulds, having the same decoration but in two different sizes. The circular moulds have vertical ribbed interiors and a floral design on the bases. The undersides each have three deep reeded lines and are raised on central bases which act as knob type handles to hold when extracting the flummery. Flummery was a popular 18th century dish containing bitter sweet almonds, rose water, calf's foot stock drained through a piece of muslin, loaf sugar and thick cream.
