LARD PAIL

Lard is fat from pigs, in both rendered and unrendered forms. It is a semi-soft white fat derived from the fatty parts of the pig with high saturated fat content and no trans fat. Most cuisines use lard as cooking fat or shortening. It is particularly favored for the preparation of pastry. During the 19th Century, lard was used similarly to butter in North America and Europe. It remained popular until the early 20th Century. By late 20th Century it began to be considered less healthy than vegetable oils. But today, it has made a comeback due to its low trans fat and unique culinary values.

With the advent of tin/metal cans, lard was sold in pails that advertised the butcher. Cans were quite colorful, had lids and bale handles. Soon they became collectable with many different motifs.

We are offering a blue lard pail with bale handle. Pail is 5.25" tall and 5" diameter. The front lettering reads "Kettle rendered Warrented Pure Lard Geo L. Williams  Slatendale, Pa. with a picture of a pig on top."   It is all metal,  blue with black lettering, gold lid. It is excellent condition, all seams are tight with honest wear.

16 TUBE TIN CANDLE MOLD

In the 18-19th centuries, candles or lamps that burned oil lighted the entire community. Candles were made from bayberry, beeswax, fats or oils derived from whales or animals. Many candles were hand dipped, but in 1700, a few well equipped homes had candle molds. The mold had from one to 72 tin tubes, each with a narrow end. A frame held the tubes upright. A string (wick) was threaded into each tube, and the melted tallow was poured into the mold to harden. The mold gave a uniformity to the candle while saving the time of hand dipping.


We are offering a 16 tube tin antique candle mold with wick holes on the bottom and a carry handle on the back with support bar. The mold stands on a raised pedestal. The gray tin has aged to a wonderful patina. All welds are sound with intact seams. The entire piece is whole -no dents or dings which is exceptional.


The dimensions are 10"T, 11"W, 3"D .  This piece shows honest, minor wear and is in excellent condition.
