Antique 1890 Fluted Stoneware Bowl/Mold
Antique 1890 C.T. Maling stoneware aspic/jelly mould
Durable tin glazed stoneware aspic mold from England, manufactured by CT Maling in Newcastle-on-Tyne. Very good antique condition with minimal wear. Glazed interior shows fine crazing from use and age. Interior is a gentle fluted shape with a plain border.
Pressed marks on the unglazed bottom include the triangle containing the initials CTM, and the date code 2.90, pinpointing the date of manufacture to February 1890. Other marks include a capital “M” and number “2”, likely indicative of the pattern, color or shape.
A prolific manufacturer, the Maling factory was established in the late 1700s by Robert Maling. Pieces from this time are marked “Maling” or “RM” or “Robert Maling”. When RM passed the kilns to his son, the potter’s mark changed to “ C.T. Maling", and by the end of the 19th century, the acronym “CTM” was widely used leading to yet another moniker of “Cetem ware” in first later half of the 20th century. The factory was sadly shuttered in the 1960s when the market was undercut by Japanese factory exports.
