What Is It? December 2019

   As Susan Thode of Broomfield, Colorado says, “My husband and I concur that December’s What Is It? is a mold to form a sleigh shape. It’s hard to tell what size it is, but appears to be an ice cream mold that opens with side hinges.” Susan and her husband are correct!
   Misty Flachman, the General Manager of the Denver Mart Trade Shows, Jerry Michals of Aurora, Colorado and Jacque Rutledge of Northglenn, Colorado also ventured guesses. Misty thought the item might be a sleigh mold. She also thought maybe it could be used to make candles. Not a bad idea. Jerry and Jacque simply guessed it is an ice cream mold. All four guesses are correct.
   Yes, this is a pewter ice cream mold. These molds were used by many fashionable restaurants at the beginning of the 20th Century. This is a three-part sleigh.
