Today's flash steal was once used as a building clay brick mold. They come to us from the Northern Areas of the Far East. They were used back in the early 1900s…This is a true once in a lifetime chance to get your hands on a piece of history!
The trays show wear, scratches, age, timeworn marks, missing nails or small chunks knocked out (and sometimes replaced)! All due to usage and old age…
Please note that some have metal straps and some don’t… The wood used to build these molds also varies from oak, elm to beechwood. Really, whatever was available at the time of construction... Some of the wood was cleaned and lacquered and some was not!
They are very versatile and great as trays, beautiful center pieces, mail and office organizers, bathroom supplies' organizers... Be creative! Wall shelves or even leaning plate holders? :)
