Double Petticoat Mold

Later Hemingray Mold
This was the last style of Hemingray mold produced. Note the more narrow top that flares out to the bottom.
No Name Mold
This style mold can be found on the No Name CD 145s produced by Hemingray: [010], [015], and [020].
H.G.CO. Narrow Skirt
This is the uncommon Narrow Skirt mold. Instead of the 3 1/4" width of the standard H.G.CO. molds, the narrow skirt mold is only 3" wide.
