    Just a little something I found at GW. I thought it looked fairly interesting as far as commercial molds go. A #57 8"x 7" Horse head bookend by Alberta's Molds Inc. It has a very Roman look to it and I liked the color and the rough texture treatment of the horse's mane. There was only one and it was marked "Alberta's" and not with someone's name and date like you would usually find. It might have been a salesroom sample to show how the mold would look. There is still a catalog (http://albertas.com/) but the molds are sold though a different company now. They've been around since the late 60's early 70's. -Mike-
