Vintage Ballerina Doll Factory Molds

About the Item

Ballerina factory molds. Great and unusual find! When dolls were made in the USA, factories used copper molds to form body parts. A rubber compound would be poured into the form, hardened, then be removed. These are the leg and arm molds of a ballerina. These rare and unusual factory molds are from the mid-20th century. Contrary to the exterior roughness of these forms, the interior of the molds was designed to produce a beautiful leg/arm for this ballerina doll. The copper form allows a rubber compound to reach the toes and fingers of this ballerina, and once hardened the arms and legs would be extracted from the molds and used in the creation of a ballerina doll. This offer is for both the two legs and the two arms pictured. Leg measures 10-1/2" in length. Widest part of leg form is 2". The arm measures 6" in length. Widest part of arm is 2".
