Antique Maple Sugar Mold Quebec 17 Hearts with Cross

This hand-carved wooden maple-sugar mould is  from Quebec. This mold dates back to late-nineteenth-early 20th century Quebec. Maple sugar dominated the market in North America until 1875. About eighty-five percent of the world's maple sugar is supplied from Canada.

Sugar molds generally take the form of long, solid blocks with a series of depressions into which raw sugar cane syrup could be poured to harden.

Approximate Dimensions: (L) 28” (W) 5 ½”, Height 1 1/2".

Condition: As found, great patina. No damage or repairs evident.
