Antique Chocolate Mold (Schokoladenform) Santa, German Belsnickle Marked LAROUSCH SCHW. This large European Father Christmas mold wears a hooded cape and carries a toy sack at his side with a western cowboy on horseback rather than the normal bag of apples. Larousch began production in 1875 and a mould such as this was considered a tool of the trade with its tight hinges for a very secure fit in the production of such a large chocolate delicacy. During WWII many chocolate factories were either forced to shut down or were bombed, leaving very little standing. In order to save these articles of history some molds were buried so as not to be melted down for the use of their metal content, or were lost to the ravages of war. Just imagine walking down a cobbled street during the Christmas holiday season where you come upon an artisan chocolate shop and see a creation in the shop window made from a mold such as this. An impressive antique mold perfect as a center piece on your dinner table, or in your foyer to welcome holiday guests. Perfect for a chocolate mold collection, given as a gift or to use for chalkware or paper mache crafting purposes. IN THE PROCESS OF ADDING MORE ANTIQUE & VINTAGE MOLDS.
