Antique brass dental false tooth mould 2
Here is another unusual item. An antique false tooth dental mould.
This is cast in brass with two opposing halves with the impressions of the teeth between. The whole item measures 8.5 cm long, 7.5cm wide and 2cm high. As it is cast of solid brass this is quite a heavy item and the two halves weigh 1kg.
The halves are stamped with a Z on the inside and outside which is probably a reference number as there would have been other moulds for other teeth. There is also still a coating of the resin (I don't know what) that was used for the false teeth on the inside of one mould and this can be seen in the photos.
