A set of three 19th century Indian jeweler's moulds, made of bronze, each one representing a Hindu deity. The first one shows a female deity, maybe Sarasvati, with four arms, holding her four attributes in her hands, riding a horse and surrounded by foliage. An inscription is incised at the back of the mould. Height: 6.3 cm. The second mould shows god Khandoba (a form of Shiva), holding a sword, riding a horse together with his wife, and accompanied by a dog running under the horse. Height: 6.2 cm. The third mould represents Hanuman, famous hero of the Ramayana, kneeling, holding a branch in his right hand and a club in his left hand. Height: 2.8 cm. All moulds are in very good condition, with a fine patina.
