This is a rare Anton Reiche Dresden Germany chocolate mold of a Rabbit with Basket. It is mold number 6842. There is no Anton Reiche mark, but this is a known design and number for other marked molds. There is a small monogram mark next to the number which I believe could be the candy factory which it was made for. Both halves are also marked with the number “6”. This would make a Rabbit that is 8 1/2″ tall and 5 1/2″ at the bottom. The mold itself is 9 1/2″ tall by 7″ across the bottom. There is only one of the clips. I did see that there are some small old solder bits on the basket at the bottom (see photos of inside and outside) , which could be an old repair… It is not noticeable and displays very well. This is a wonderful rare mold. The item “Rare ANTON REICHE RABBIT withBASKET CHOCOLATE MOLD #6842 ANTIQUE” is in sale since Thursday, January 11, 2018.
