An authentic old wooden brick mould that would make an ideal storage box.
This style of tropical hardwood brick moulds once used for making mud or adobe bricks feature an internal logo...to show the maker's mark.
Today these chunky, solid tropical hardwood and iron moulds make great storage wooden storage boxes.
Of course with the advent of mechanisation, cement and concrete use of moulds like these has almost ceased. However, small-scale rural enterprises can still be found making bricks in parts of Africa and India. Some brick moulds have wooden, composite or plastic inserts with the maker's name or initials.
Size: W30cm x D15cm x H9cm (sizes vary slightly).
Our vintage brick moulds are not new or made to look old. They will small marks and scratches, there may also be rough edges, bent nails and iron banding protruding from the base or sides of the mould. There may also be historic splits to the wood. These are consistent with their age and original use. We feel these add to their character and appeal.
Our current stock of moulds either have a maker's marque inside or without the marque. If you have a preference please let us know at the time of ordering. if you do not tell us we will select a mould at random.
If using as planters we would advise drilling 2-3 drainage holes in the bottom. If you would like us to drill the holes for you please make a request in the 'customer comments field when checking out.
