Catalogue Description:
Two halves of a stone mold used for casting jewelry, most likely in gold. Most of the forms appear to be for hoop earrings of various sizes, some more elaborate than others. But at the center is the form for a delicate pin with a bird finial and a larger triangular panel with a figure seated cross-legged at the center.
