French game pie baking pate tin mold

I found and bid on a vintage French game pie baking pate tin mold on Ebay and to my surprise I was the winning bidder.  I was shocked that it arrived in only a couple days.  I am so excited about this purchase and am busily thinking about what my first pie will be.  I'm thinking about a pork pie, then a steak pie and maybe a curried lamb pie.  Oh the options are limitless.  I purchased this pie pan because I seen the most beautiful meat pie I had ever seen.   I will show you soon my pie creations.

  1. Lovely pie..please, what is the length of your tin...I purchased mine in London about 40 years ago...I think that this is the most beautiful style.

  2. It's 8 inches long x 5 1/2 inches wide. It is in perfect condition and I was very lucky to get it. They do not make beautiful Pie moulds like this one anymore...very sad because I love a beautiful pie.

  3. I think the mold are beautiful to look at also...I am embarrassed to say on the web tht I own three...one lthe same , one larger and one smaller. The fiest time I went to London I could only find the large one...and that was difficult to find then..probably closer to 40 years ago...that is rather large for a couple of people..when I was fortunate to return about 20'years ago I found the med...which was the size I had wanted and then a small one...I thin these were probably the only things I could afford to buy that trip. they sit in a glass cabinet in the kitchen so Imsee them everyday..I guess like someone else would look at a piece of sculpture. I am really glad to see some else appreciates this mold...I just think the shape is fantastic!

  4. I love the shape of this game pie mold too. Would you be interested in selling any of your collection? I'm in Australia.

    1. Hi Brandy, no I use them regularly so I couldn't part with them. There is someone reproducing them that I found a while back. I'm sorry but I did not save that information. Just keep searching and you will find one I'm sure.
