This is an incredibly beautiful piece!
Made by the Griswold Manufacturing Company between the 1930’s and 1960’s, this cast iron lamb cake mold is marked with 866 on the front bottom and 921 and 922 on the two pieces.
It measures about 10-1/8″ long (not including the handles), and 3-3/4″ wide at the base. The front of the lamb overlaps the back piece of the lamb. The name “Griswold” is not on the lamb; that marking was not on Griswold’s lamb. The particulars of the lamb and its face, as well as the numbers, identify it as a Griswold lamb.
It is absolutely beautiful! It has a gorgeous glossy patina, and I see no signs of use. Please see the photos.
I cleaned the lamb down to bare iron and heat-seasoned it with one coat of Crisco. It is ready for immediate use or display!
