DESCRIPTION

If you collect early springerle boards, here is a true rarity.

We found this locally in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. This is absolutely fabulous! A fantastic early Pennsylvania German Springerle Cake or Cookie mold from the late 1700's with the most wonderful hand carving of Hearts.

A very heavy solid piece of hard wood all hand carved with this delightful 'Heart within a Heart' motif for the mold pattern. Anabsolutely exqusite and quite rare piece of Antique Pennsylvania Dutch Folk Art.

The wood is a fine grained hard wood. There are beautiful fluted edges forming the large heart shape and the interior carving is of a smaller heart surrounded by trees and additional leaf or tree carvings at the center of the interior heart. All around the outer edges you can see the wear from more than 200 years of use. Old square nails can be seen in the wood on the sides guarding two distinct shrinkage lines that have developed over time. Neither shrinkage line goes clear through the wood, the mold is actually still in one piece and is not loose or coming apart at all.

The outer edges of the mold are also quite wonderful to look at with the fine chiseled lines still visable from the hand tools that were used to cut the outer shape of the mold.

There is plenty of wear overall, it obviously was a very well used, and surly loved mold for many years. We have left this as found, old dust in the crevices.

No paint, varnish or shellac or wax on the wood, it has developed this beautiful dark color naturally from age alone.

Size: 7-7/8" long x 4-1/2" wide x 2" thick

A Superb Find and a Rare Beauty!
