NOT AVAILABLE AS ALREADY SOLD
This back view of the mould shows a split in one of the ribs. This form of damage is not uncommon and does not prevent the mould from being used. Normally the damage would be bound with phosphor bronze wire to strengthen it but this mould may not have been used since the damage occurred.

This view also shows how the face and backing wires are sewn down onto the ribs; close inspection reveals both layers of wire.
