Via a bankruptcy case I have acquired many jewelry molds by a famous
artist. Most of these molds are “production” molds i.e. rubber. I
am forced to sell the molds and the licensing to produce the jewelry
to a manufacturer to recover my investment. I am being told that not
having the “masters” severely detracts from the value of this mold
collection since masters are extremely time consuming and costly to
re-produce. I can understand that it must be difficult to make a
master from scratch, but how difficult or costly is it to "re-master"
from an existing mold. Your comments will be appreciated.
