This is an old, rare chocolate mold – candy mold of animals. That’s a 25% discount. 12″ x 6″ x 1. Each mold measures 1 1/2″ long by 1 1/4″ tall and 1/4 deep. It weighs 2 pounds and (just under) 12 ounces. (It’s heavier than you think it would be). This mold is made of lead I. And (I also believe) coated with a type of zinc alloy. Because there is some rust on it, we know it’s not: Stainless Steel, Aluminum, Copper, Bronze or Brass, or Galvanized Steel. There are 4 rows with 7 individual molds in each row, creating a total of 28 different animal molds. RHINOCEROS COW SEAL GOAT CAMEL ELEPHANT SHEEP. HIPPOPOTAMUS FOX DOG KANGAROO WOLF REINDEER HYENA. LLAMA BUFFALO ZEBRA BEAR MOOSE TIGER SQUIRREL. RABBIT DONKEY HORSE PIG LION CAT MONKEY. The individual molds are rectangular, and each has a flat surface framed by a raised edge. The animal shapes are also raised, like a low-relief sculpture. In addition, the name of each animal is written below each animal, also in raised, individual letters. The letters are all in capitals, and the height of the letters are the same. Some of the letters of (longer) animal names are scrunched together to get all of the letters to fit. For example, the shortest animal names are CAT, DOG, FOX and COW. But the longest is HIPPOPOTAMUS (12 letters)! Please, look closely at the images, as they are part of the description. You’ll see that the mold is in overall good condition with natural wear and tear for it’s age. It has a lovely patina to it. Only one of the individual cracker molds is damaged: The bear. Additionally, there are some very small rust spots in the crevices of a few of the individual molds, but I didn’t even really notice them until I looked at the photos.
