    It could be a bullet mold that was not finish or was used to straighten hair when heated. Other wise ?

    I bought it thinking I might make a bullet mold from it, a few years later I saw one in a cracker barrel type resturant hanging on the wall..

    my bet it is a Turner Kirkland mold from Dixie Gun Works in TN, he sold this type years ago, and about any size you wanted and even a blank one, so you could make your own...GRUBBY

    Forgot to add, that in the book-catalog he stated that he saw it being used to straighten hair in the south, on his travels, and that is how he got the idea...Grubby

    It looks like it could be a button crimper for making upholstered buttons. Had something similar to that many years ago in my fathers furniture store. it also came with dies to cut the fabric, an the button blanks were available from the upholstery supply house.

    Grubby is right. I have (had?) one here somewhere that has a .68 round ball cavity that made round balls to shoot in a .69 cal musket. It came from Dixie Gun Works and as I recall they sold the same mold with no cavity so you could mill it out to your own specifications. The handles on the .68 round ball mold are/were red just as those in the photo appear to be.
