Produced by O.A. Holdbrook of 15 Foster's Wharf, Boston, MA, this Wee Novel Tee Moulder is one of the first sand tee molds made in America.  The tee is in mint condition, and comes in its original purple box. 

The mould is stamped "Pat Apl'd For" on the top of the plunger. Olin A. Holbrook received a US Patent dated December 2, 1902 for this device, in perfect working condition—or so the auctioneer expects, as the paper on this mold looks has lasted over a century with little disturbance. The Wee Moulder Tee in the images is an actual mint Wee Moulder Tee, but it's a "stand in" for the one in the box. The auctioneer did not want to unwrap the original protective paper wrap.

Wee Novel Tee Moulder's came in 4 different box colors all of which are offered individually in this auction.
