The Griswold Manufacturing Company made three cast iron cake molds in the 1930′s through 1950′s: Santa, a Rabbit, and a Lamb. This offering is for a complete set of all three authentic molds. There are replica molds out there that are offered; these three are the real deal. It is not often that you find an offering for a complete set in excellent condition.
The Santa mold measures about 12 1/8″ x 6 7/8″ x 4 5/8″ deep. Santa is marked with 897, 898, and Griswold MFG Co, Erie PA. He is also marked “Hello Kiddies!” Santa is in excellent condition. I cleaned Santa to bare iron and seasoned him with one coat of Crisco vegetable shortening to protect the iron.
The Rabbit mold measures about 11″ tall x 10″ long x 4″ deep. The rabbit is marked with 862, 863, and Griswold MFG Co, Erie PA. The rabbit is also in excellent condition. Again, I cleaned the rabbit to bare iron and seasoned it with one coat of Crisco vegetable shortening to protect the iron.
The Lamb mold measures about 10 1/8″ long x 4 1/8″ deep x 7″ high. The lamb is marked with 866. The lamb is also in excellent condition. I cleaned the lamb to bare iron and seasoned it with one coat of Crisco vegetable shortening.
This is a gorgeous set; very hard to come by and in beautiful clean condition.
