This is a 2-piece plaster mold for casting a dish featuring a pair of apples (or maybe cherries) who seem to be engaged in courtship. You could use this form to create your own castings, but lately we've been seeing these more as sculptural forms in their own right. Since it's a negative form, it catches the light to make it read like a photo neg, giving the face an other-worldly feel, accented by the bumps and hollows that keep the mold lined up while casting.
No maker's markings, looks like it could be from the 50's to the 70's. Fitted together, the mold is about 7" square, by about 2.5" thick. It would mold a dish that's about 5" wide.
