Up for grabs, we have this very early, antique chocolate mold…. The very first chocolate molds appeared in France in the mid-1830s…… Made of stamped sheet copper and often measuring no more than an inch in diameter, multiple molds were mounted in sturdy frames intended to make multiple small inexpensive chocolate candies…… Today we refer to these molds as flats, These first chocolate molds started as simple geometric shapes intended to bring chocolate to the mass market in candy form…… Since chocolate will not easily release from the mold after the molten chocolate cooled, the molds were coated in a silver wash, These molds produce a thin candy, often called a flat-back candy…… Shortly, small animal figures and other familiar shapes joined the plain geometric shapes…… The first three dimensional molds, sometimes called double molds, arrived, again in France, in the mid-1840s……. Stamped out of copper and silver washed, these molds ranged in size from an inch-and-a-half to well over 18 inches tall…… Made from two or more pieces, these molds were usually held together with inexpensive hand clampswe refer to these clamps today as clips……. Sometime around the late 1860s, the silver wash was replaced by tinning because tin was less expensive than silver, and the tinning would last longer than the silver wash…….. This old chocolate mold we have here is truly a rare find…… It’s a “Double” mold folk’s and its in the shape of a very early monoplane…… Its a rather larger mold as well, measuring 11 long and its in descent shape, despite some minor signs of age, its fully intact as well……. This is an amazing piece, its perfect for display in your collection…. All the items we have for sale are described as accurately as possible and to the best of our ability….
