We had two correct answers for our December’s What Is It. Vicky Kellen of Castle Pines, Colorado guessed that the item is some sort of mold. Her mother-in-law has a cast iron rabbit mold and this reminds her of it. Suzanne Lee of Centennial, Colorado believes this is an ice cream mold. She is right!
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.
Congratulations, Vicky and Suzanne. You have both won a year’s subscription to the Mountain States Collector.
