This is a mold to make lead diving weights. This pattern is referred to as a horseshoe or chest weight. They were strapped to the diver via the helmet on the chest and back. This model, specifically, is for Schrader weights that would have been used in the 1800s and 1900s. This is a very thick heavy duty cast aluminum mold. The second photo is an example of what the mold will produce and is for reference only. The Schrader name is not part of the mold. The actual lead weight is not included.
