Rare Anton Reiche Antique, Vintage Large Rabbit Couple w/ Basket Chocolate Metal Mold. 8″ high x 8″ long x 2 1/2 wide. The detailing of this mold is exquisite and is a very early antique chocolate mold made from a stamped sheet of copper. History shows that as early as the 1840’s double chocolate molds were made from copper which were then washed in silver. Sometime around the 1860’s the silver wash was replaced by tinning because it was cheaper and would last longer. Copper sheeting was used up until the 1890’s when the switch was made to steel, this switch over was completed by the 1910’s. This mold is clearly within the time period of which some of the earliest chocolate mold pieces were made as seen by the the copper showing through. The fine workmanship of this antique mold would be indicative of an Anton Reich chocolate mold as no other mold makers could match his artistry, but because this mold is so well loved the manufacturers mark can not be seen. Lovely chocolate mold to begin a collection, add to your current collection or use for crafting such as chalkware, beeswax, etc. Please contact me before paying and I will send an invoice.
