Vintage Molds

Thousands of kilo’s of excellent molds & forms were recently brought from Tilburg to the Randstad. A huge industry was built on these items. Rumor has it, that at that time, upcoming artists of the Tilburg School of Applied Arts were partly responsible for these wonderful pieces.

The forms are often part of collections. However, the even rarer molds are not often shown in these quantities. The molds can be used for multiple purposes; they have been used as a paperweight, doorstops, focus, beautification or processed in decorative walls. Others have purchased a variety of stamps for nostalgic and eclectic reasons ...
