SUM­MER COL­LECTA­BLES

Homes and Antiques Magazine - - THE MONTH -

The sweet treat of child­hood mem­o­ries, a jewel-bright fruit jelly is also a Bri­tish sum­mer es­sen­tial and when it’s served in a pre! y mould, even be!er! The ori­gins of this quiv­er­ing con­fec­tion can be found in the 1300s, but it was the early Geor­gians who in­tro­duced the con­cept of the dec­o­ra­tive mould. An­tique moulds come in many shapes, sizes and an as­sort­ment of hard­wear­ing ma­te­ri­als such as china, cop­per and glass, so there are still plenty about. A "ne sight dis­played on open shelves along­side your vin­tage china col­lec­tion, you can pick up these de­light­ful ex­am­ples of do­mes­tic her­itage in house clear­ance sales and lo­cal junk shops, re­gard­less of whether you de­cide to make jelly in them, or not!
