This past weekend at the Flea Market, was one good find after another, and this antique tin chocolate mold, was another one of them. The tin mold is in the shape of a Dutch shoe, and it's 4 parts are hinged together, and then held tight with spring clips, that are connected to the mold so that none of the parts, can be separated and possibly lost. It's kind of the "top of the line" chocolate mold! :^D
The total length of the mold is 6 1/2", by 3" tall, and 2 3/4" at the widest point. It makes a mold that's 6" by 2 3/8" by 1 3/4" wide, and has a finished surface that looks like wooden grain, with a couple of knots in it, in the shape of a Dutch shoe.
I think that this tin chocolate mold, was made in the 1920's or earlier, but is unmarked. On other Dutch shoe molds that I saw that were similar, and marked, some were made in France, but I don't know about this one!
Thanks for checking out my new antique tin chocolate shoe mold! :^)
